Currently reading: Citroen brings back petrol and diesel Berlingo MPV due to demand
Combustion-engined five-seat van returns after its removal from sale in 2020, priced at £25,465

The Citroën Berlingo MPV is back on sale in the UK in petrol and diesel guises, with the French firm citing high demand as the reason for its return.

Available to order now, with production set to start in May, the Berlingo is priced from £25,465 as a diesel, while petrols command a slight premium, at £25,590. 

The Berlingo was removed from sale in 2020, following the arrival of the electric Citroën ë-Berlingo. Citroën said the continued popularity of petrol and diesel was enough to warrant a return for ICE versions of the MPV. 

“While [the] ë-Berlingo Electric has enjoyed considerable success since its launch, customer demand for petrol and diesel variants has persisted,” said Citroën

“With Citroën’s commitment to offering accessible and affordable mobility to all, the brand is now delighted to reintroduce the powertrains to the model range, giving fleets and private buyers a wider choice of vehicles.”

The engines are a 108bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol, a 98bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel (both with a six-speed manual gearbox) and a 128bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel (with an eight-speed automatic). 

Two specification levels – Feel and Flair XTR – will be available, exclusively in the M bodystyle, which measures 4.4 metres long and 1.9 metres high, with space for five adults. 

Standard equipment includes an 8.0in infotainment touchscreen, a DAB radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, automatic headlights and rear parking sensors.

All versions gain a suite of safety equipment including cruise control, speed-limit recognition, lane-keeping assistance and active safety braking. 

The Flair XTR model is equipped with 17in wheels, gloss-black exterior design elements and orange foglight surrounds. 

The ë-Berlingo continues to be sold here, priced from £32,315, with a 134bhp motor and a 50kWh battery for 174 miles of range. It still offers the larger XL bodystyle with a third row of seats.

Has anyone managed to order one yet?Neither Orpington nor Wimbledon dealers know anything about it. I contacted Citroen via their website and they've responded that they can't help me and it's the dealers I should enquire from.

Where did the press get this information from?

Hooray! I'm just really reiterating what has already be said on the subject, but I do feel quite strongly about this. Yes, it is refreshing that a manufacturer actually listens to it's customers. I have nothing against the electric versions, but they only really suit the people that will use the vehicle for local use, which excludes the users that require a truely practical vehicle to cover big distances in a short space of time.

An example of my use is to drive 250+ miles to a cycling event on a Saturday, then camp in a field (with no electical supply, so no chance of an overnight charge), do the event on Sunday and drive home the 250+ miles straight after, arriving home late at night. The thought of adding a couple of hours to each journey for charging stops is rather soul destroying. Rather a niche use I grant you, but thats what I need a vehicle to do and there is nothing better for moving bikes and camping gear, then have an easy to use base for the weekend (sliding doors and a big tailgate for shelter, makes life much easier).

Hopefully secondhand values might ease a bit now that a fresh supply of ICE vehicles will be avalable.

After all, they were already selling it as a Toyota. Not sure why they don't offer the Doblò and Partner as ICE variants as well. Must be to do with emissions regulations.
