Citroen Berlingo Electric Van
Citroen Berlingo Electric
Citroen Berlingo Electric van is one of the only electrically-powered commercial vehicles on the roads. With the same practicality and reliability of the Berlingo, the electric engine is more affordable to run and is better for the environment. With more charge-points being installed around big cities and congestion charges rising, it is becoming more and more feasible to use an electric van over a diesel.
Although the vehicle itself is more expensive, it is much more affordable to run with the average mile costing no more than 3p. It is perfect for those making short trips around cities as it only has a range of 106 miles.
There’s two different charge ports with the AC providing an 100% charge in 8 hours from a Type 2 socket. Or, for overnight charging at home, a standard domestic plug powers up your electric Citroen Berlingo in 10 hours. For a quick charge, the DC charges to 80% in just half hour. There are Government schemes that encourage the use of an electric vehicle with grants being provided to subsidise some of the case of a charge-point installation at home or at your work place. Find out more here.
You have a range of choices when it comes to picking your Berlingo. There are two load lengths which can provide load space up to 4.1 m³ as well as a choice of specification. Take a look at the non-electric Berlingo if these are better for your needs.
Specification of Citroen Berlingo Electric
Citroen offer a choice of four specifications to choose from for your electric Berlingo. The lower two – the X and Worker – are the more practical options while at the two at the top – the Enterprise and Driver – have more modern features and comforts.
The Berlingo X includes:
- DAB Radio
- Full bulkhead
- Automatic headlights
- Electric mirrors
- Sliding side door
The Worker comes with a few more features in addition to the X, such as electronic handbrake, overload indicator, grip control and load area with LED lighting.
Top of the range is the Berlingo Driver, which includes:
- 16″ alloy wheels
- Cruise control
- Heated, electrically folding mirrors
- 8″ touchscreen
- Cornering foglights
- Parking sensors (front and rear)
- Reversing camera
- Body coloured bumpers
- Extra sound insulation
- Automatic wipers
- Citroen Connect Navigation
The Enterprise comes with most of these features but without the parking sensors, sat nav and rear view camera. But, you can get these added to the Enterprise trim at a more affordable price as we can install these at our workshop. Any image upgrades, such as alloys, can also be done should you want to put your own touch on the vehicle.
How much is a Citroen Berlingo Electric?
The electric Citroen Berlingo is more expensive than a diesel version. However, if you’re based in London or other big cities, it could save you a few pounds. Electric vehicles are exempt from congestion charges which can save you about £50 per week. As well as this, the electric Berlingo is exempt from road tax so although you may pay more for the vehicle itself, you can save on fuel and charges.
Finance lease is the most popular way to get your Citroen Berlingo, spreading the cost into monthly payments following placement of a low deposit. You can buy the vehicle outright while we offer other payment methods, too. These include:
- Finance lease
- Buying outright
- Contract hire
- Hire purchase
- Lease purchase

Best Ways Of Van Finance
At Swiss we have literally most funders on the market and will introduce you to the best value. Our aim is to help you grow your fleet
and become your natural choice to replace vehicles.
– Van Hire purchase – VAT down and VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months.
– Van Leasing
Small deposits from one payment in advance to 50% of the van price. Its 100% tax deductible so great fir new start companies that have start up costs. Is the favourite way for many manufacturers so often attracts the greatest discounts. Its more flexible than contract hire.
– Lease Purchase
Not all manufactures support this method so often pre registered vans are the way to go. This is because you take ownerships automatically and they worry it will affect residual values. Ask us first as often you cant get a private plate on this method. Its very much like HP but more suited to VAT registered companies as they can claim the VAT back of course. If you are flat rate VAT this is the one for you.
– Van Contract Hire
Great for larger fleets that want to control costs but its seldom sold to smaller users as its quite restrictive. Many ask for it because they have asked for it in the past. Some mistakenly think there is no credit check check but there is.
