Berlingo van lands
CITROEN'S popular Light Commercial Vehicle range has been recognised with a series of top awards.
The ultimate ‘Van of the Year' prize was won by the new, full-electric Citroen e-Berlingo Van, which also picked up the Electric Van - Best Overall trophy at the What Car? Van and Commercial Vehicle of the Year Awards 2022.
New e-Berlingo Van is the latest addition to Citroen's three-model e-LCV line-up, which is available to order now.
Built with a 50kWh battery and a 100kw (136hp) electric motor, the e-Berlingo Van has a range of up to 171 miles and supports up to 100kW rapid charging - which means an 80 per cent charge takes as little as 30 minutes.
It also features regenerative braking technology to extend the vehicle's range and the driver can choose between three modes via a specific control on the centre console - Normal, Eco and Power.
Steve Huntingford, the What Car? editor, said: "The e-Berlingo has pushed open the door to electrification for both fleets and private users by setting new standards for practicality and range.
"It's also comfortable, great to drive and offers favourable running costs over a diesel alternative."
CitroÃ«n UK's most recently announced model - Ami Cargo Electric - also received high praise at the awards, taking home the ‘Best Innovation' trophy.
The ultra-compact Ami Cargo Electric is derived from the AMI passenger version, and is designed for fleet and business operators as a practical, ‘last mile' delivery solution for use in urban areas.
It features a 5.5kWh Lithium battery connected to a 6kW electric motor, for emissions-free access to delivery locations in the city.
The vehicle can be fully charged in three hours and is capable of 46 miles of range. With zero CO2emissions, Ami Cargo Electric is exempt from Congestion and Ultra-Low Emissions Zone charges.
