commerical van at the Hannover Motor Show. It comes with a 22.5kWh battery pack that gives the vehicle a 170km range. Citroën is aiming the car at commercial customers who are looking to lower their CO2 footprint. It still offers 4.1m³ of cargo space and a 675kg payload.

The Electric Berlingo packages its electric motor and components under the hood and in the floor to keep the payload area uncluttered. It has a split, two-part battery pack located under the floor with 22.5kWh of charge. It gives the car a 170km range.

and provides 67hp and 200Nm of torque through the front wheels. It uses a single-speed transmission. It is also equipped with a braking regeneration system. 

Because of its large battery pack, Citroën has packed the car with two charging connections. When using both, it takes about 6 hours to charge from a standard outlet. That time doubles if the owner is just using one of the charging connections. The Electric Berlingo can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes from a fast charger. 

Inside, the Electric Berlingo has a charge indicator and regeneration indicator to tell drivers how much further they have on a charge. It also has electric heat and hill start assist. It seats three abreast in the cabin. 

Like the standard Berlingo, the electric version is available with either 4.38m or 4.63m lengths. 

The Electric Berlingo will be built in Spain and go on sale in 2013.
