News from Citroën: Citroën has further improved the fuel efficiency and reduced the CO2 emissions of the Berlingo.

The versions benefiting from these latest improvements are the Berlingo X, LX and Enterprise vans equipped with the HDi 75 diesel engine and the Berlingo LX e-HDi 90 manual micro-hybrid van.

The November changes have seen the HDi 75 powered Berlingo vans’ combined cycle fuel consumption figure improve to 56.5mpg from 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions reduced to 131g/km from 133g/km. Similarly, the Berlingo LX e-HDi 90 manual micro-hybrid sees its CO2 emissions reduced to 120g/km from 125g/km and its combined cycle fuel consumption figure improve to 61.4mpg from 58.9mpg.

Jeremy Smith, Citroën’s Head of Commercial Vehicles & Business Sector Operations, commented, “These latest changes will help to maintain the Berlingo’s strong sales performance. In the first three quarters of this year, the Berlingo showed a year-on-year sales growth of 14% to 12,283. We expect that this popular model will deliver one of its best-ever sales results in 2014, reflecting its strong appeal to businesses both large and small.”

The Berlingo range includes a unique selection of models, with a choice of efficient full-electric, petrol, diesel and diesel micro-hybrid drivetrains. Berlingos are available with a factory built choice of L1 and L2 panel vans, 5-seat crew vans, enhanced traction vans and platform cabs for special bodywork. The Berlingo panel van is also the only model in its sector to be supplied as standard with Teletrac satellite navigation and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking.
