Performance & drive
What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
With its batteries positioned beneath the floor, the Berlingo Electric has a lot of evenly distributed, low-down weight. That means it feels really sharp to drive, even considering that it's based on the previous-generation Berlingo, which dates back to 2008.
The newer diesel-powered Berlingo is without doubt a much better vehicle all round, but the Berlingo Electric doesn't suffer as much from the overly soft suspension and jelly-like body control of the older model.
