An advanced, all-new Berlingo will be launched during 2008 which, together with the forthcoming introduction of its new smaller stablemate, the Nemo, will make it another year of development and innovation for Citroën’s commercial vehicle operations.


This new generation Berlingo builds upon the outstanding success of the current model that, together with car versions, has sold over 1.75 million worldwide, making it the most successful commercial vehicle in Citroën’s history.

The new Berlingo will offer a payload of up to 850kg, together with a load length and space of 1.8m and 3.3 m3 respectively, whilst the availability of an Extenso® modular cabin allows larger loads of 3m and 3.7m3 to be carried. The all new model, which can seat three, will provide an unbeatable combination of design and engineering innovation, together with major practical, functional and cost benefits.

Offering passenger car like levels of equipment, the new model will be available with features such as Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and hill start assist. Further details of the new Berlingo, which will offer a wider choice of models and specifications than the current model, will be released nearer to its UK on-sale date, later in 2008.

Robert Handyside, Citroën’s commercial vehicle operations manager, comments, “During the second quarter of 2008 Citroën will launch the all-new sub-compact Nemo van, which will open up new markets for the company. The new Berlingo, due for launch later in the year, will expand Citroën’s coverage of the high cube van sector. Both the new Nemo and the Berlingo will complement the recently launched Dispatch and Relay ranges and, with the C2 Enterprise, allow Citroën to offer a seamless choice of carrying capacities covering the 0.84 to 17.0m3 sector in the up to 4.05 tonne gvw sector.”
