Citroën UK has introduced an XL version of its fully electric ë-Berlingo Flair XTR van giving it seven seats for increased practicality.
With the new XL, customers can enjoy an extra 35cm of body length giving a new load length of more than three metres, as well as 500-litres more load space when the rear seats are down.
The Flair XTR version is Citroën’s range-topping trim and was previously only available in a Medium version with five seats.
Built with a 100kW electric motor and 50kWh battery pack, the new ë-Berlingo can travel up to 174 WLTP miles. All ë-Berlingo models can be charged back up to 80% in 30 minutes using a 100kW rapid public charger.
As standard, the Flair XTR features airbump exterior styling, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, DAB radio plus Android Auto and Apple Car Play. It also comes with a suite of safety features, including active lane assist, active safety brake, cruise control and speed limiter, speed limit recognition and driver attention alert.
To ensure the Flair XTR trim stands out from the rest, Citroën has given it 17-inch ‘Spin’ alloy wheels, gloss black roof bars, front and rear scuff-plates, XTR badging and a ‘Resada Green’ interior ambience.
Earlier this month, we reported that Citroën is now selling its Citroën Berlingo as exclusively 100% electric, closing its order books for petrol and diesel versions.
It is priced at £32,995, which is over the UK Government’s plug-in grant threshold of £32,000, meaning customers will not be entitled to the £1,500 discount. All other members of the e-Berlingo range still qualify for the grant.
