the New Berlingo, CitroŽn’s range of light commercial vehicles for
professionals will be broader and more complete than ever before. The
launch of the New Berlingo follows those of new Jumper, new Jumpy and CitroŽn’s latest compact van, Nemo.
CitroŽn strengthened its position as a leader on the compact van market with the launch of the Berlingo
in 1996. At end-November 2007, the Marque had a 17% share of this
segment in Europe, 27 countries. The Berlingo accounts for 48% of
CitroŽn’s light commercial vehicle sales in Europe (Europe, 27
countries, through November 2007) – and nearly one in five CitroŽns
sold in Europe is a light commercial vehicle. More than 800,000
Berlingo vans have been sold worldwide since launch.
Berlingo will go on sale in second-half 2008. It will be sold alongside
the current Berlingo model, available in some countries as an
entry-level vehicle, called Berlingo First,
fitted with the HDi 75 and 75 bhp 1.4-litre engines. With the
Nemo, Berlingo First and New Berlingo, CitroŽn will have an extensive
line-up of compact vans covering a wide range of needs.
The key words with the New Berlingo are functionality and performance, as well as styling, comfort and low running costs.
