The brand said it has made the bold decision to accelerate the switchover of these models to all-electric powertrains, for the benefit of customers and the environment. Conventional, fuel-powered versions will continue to be available in LCV form (Berlingo Van and Dispatch). Given the current production situation, the most recent orders placed in 2021 for the fuel-powered versions, will be delivered during 2022.
The Grand C4 SpaceTourer, which can transport up to seven people, is still included in the range with an internal combustion engine.
The decision is the result of the brand’s approach to the future of mobility, the desire to accelerate its energy transition strategy and the wish to provide customers with solutions in line with future trends.
Citroën’s electrification strategy focuses on models that offer ë-comfort and ease of use, lower running costs, as well as reduced environmental impact, while maintaining the quality of on-board space and adaptability that make Berlingo and SpaceTourer benchmarks in their respective segments.
New ë-Berlingo Electric is available in two lengths for up to seven people. It retains the same generous passenger compartment, three independent rear seats, the Modutop multi-function roof and an opening rear window.
Citroën ë-SpaceTourer Electric is a large, modern and versatile MPV, which allows up to nine people to travel in optimum comfort. With two lengths to choose from and its options for interior fittings, it provides a new 100%-electric solution for businesses and families, or groups of friends. It allows great freedom of movement for a large group, with a driving range of up to 143 miles (WLTP) from its 50kWh battery pack. It offers the same ease of charging as the new ë-Berlingo Electric and all the pleasure of driving in electric mode.
At the same time as the removal of the internal combustion versions from the range – and in line with Citroën UK’s principal of ‘Fair Pricing’ – there will be reductions to the manufacturer’s recommended retail prices (MRRP) of the ë-Berlingo Electric and ë-SpaceTourer Electric ranges, effective from 11 January 2022. As a brand determined to make electric vehicles available to all, the pricing adjustments allow selected models to continue to attract the Plug-In Vehicle Grant that saw its criteria for eligibility changed on 15 December 2021.
New ë-Berlingo Electric sees MRRP reductions, allowing both ‘Feel’ and ‘Flair XTR’ models to continue to attract the Government grant. The MRRP for the range now starts at £30,995 resulting in a price from £29,495 once the PiVG has been applied.
The Citroën ë-SpaceTourer Electric range has received a reduction in MRRP on the recently introduced ‘Business Edition’ trim level. With pricing starting from £31,795 (£30,295 with £1,500 PiVG applied) both ‘M’ and ‘XL’ lengths will both qualify for the grant. With seating for up to nine occupants, ë-SpaceTourer Electric ‘Business Edition’ represents outstanding value for consumers, in line with the brands ‘Fair Pricing’ ethos.
