Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The conventional-engined Berlingo range is pretty versatile, and the Berlingo Electric offers a similar number of size and load options. There are two different lengths available: L1, which can transport lengths of up to 1800mm, and the larger L2, which can move 2050mm.
Thanks to the Multi Flex seats, you can also create another 1200mm of usable length by folding the front passenger seat forwards and and pivoting the mesh bulkhead to one side. As a result, the total load volume is 3.7m3 for the L1 and 4.1m3 in the L2.
The width across the van is 1620mm, and there’s only one roof height with 1250mm of space. Despite all of the batteries, payloads remain moderately high, with a maximum of 636kg for the smaller van and 552kg for the larger one.
True, that’s not as good as in the Nissan eNV200, which can move 752kg and has a load volume of 4.2 cubic metres, but the Berlingo Electric is roughly the same as the standard Kangoo ZE, which can move three cubic metres and has a 640kg maximum payload.
