NEW CITROËN BERLINGO VAN AND BERLINGO ELECTRIC VAN TAKE TOP HONOURS AT THE 2019 BUSINESS VAN AWARDS
New Citroën Berlingo Van has added another award to the growing number it has received since its launch late last year, winning Best Small Trades Van in The Business Van Awards 2019. The Berlingo Electric van was also a winner, taking the Best Green Van trophy. The judges praised New Berlingo Van for its low fuel consumption, while the Berlingo Electric was recognised an important answer to the growing demand for electric delivery vans.
Citroën’s Berlingo Electric van was named Best Green Van, recognising the minimal environmental impact made by its electric drivetrain. Berlingo Electric was one of the first vans to offer rapid charging enabling it to be charged to 80% of full battery capacity in just 30 minutes, greatly enhancing its usability in the process.
“We are starting to see a swing towards electric delivery vans and the attraction of an EV for deliveries around town is gathering pace”, says Business Vans Managing Editor Chris Wright, “The Berlingo Electric fits the bill nicely and our judges were also impressed that Citroën offers demonstrator vehicles and loan vans as well as hosting regular business to business events.”
