What Car? says...
The question of how you make an MPV cool might just have been answered by the Citroën e-Berlingo – make it electric.
In years to come there will no doubt be many other multi-purpose 'volts-wagon' electric cars, but the Citroën e-Berlingo is one of a select few at the moment. There's also the nearly identical Peugeot e-Rifter and Vauxhall Combo-e Life, along with the Nissan e-NV200 Combi.
Yes, you’ve read that correctly: you can have an all-electric seven-seater without having to fork out for a pricey Tesla Model X. The Berlingo’s simple sliding rear doors work perfectly well in tight car parks (arguably better than the Model X's overly complicated gullwing doors, in fact).
Read on to find out whether the electric conversion has made the Citroën e-Berlingo even easier to live with than the original Berlingo, and how it compares with other electric van-based MPVs you might be considering. We'll cover all aspects of the car, from its performance and range to the quality of the interior and the running costs.
Remember, when you do decide to buy new vehicle of any make and model, we can help you cut the cost by thousands if you search for the best price using our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It has a good selection of Citroën Berlingo deals.
