With New Berlingo PC (particular vehicle) arriving in dealerships this summer, the Citroën brand is unveiling today the third-generation LCV version of Berlingo intended for professionals, New Berlingo Van. A commercial vehicle market in which Citroën achieved 9.7% market share in 2017 in Europe and is positioned in third place on the podium, with almost 73 000 units. The brand’s legitimacy in small vans is underpinned by its pioneering past in the segment, having launched the legendary 2CV, C15 and Berlingo, as well as having introduced the first diesel, the first model with an integrated load cell, and the first model with three front seats. Building on this strong heritage, New Berlingo Van marks the renewal of a best-selling vehicle.
A benchmark in “practical sense” for professionals, Citroën Berlingo is a key player in its segment that has successfully innovated over the years. Since launch, it has been produced in over 1.5 million units worldwide, over 1.3 million of which in Europe and over 470,000 in France. An essential model, Berlingo enjoyed a record year in 2017 in France with over 27,000 registrations, up 4% on 2016. Today still, with already over 8,000 registrations, up 25% in first-quarter 2018, Berlingo alone accounts for 40% of Citroën’s LCV registrations and stands as the Brand’s top-selling LCV. Full of ambition, New Berlingo Van intends to continue its success story in its third-generation version, set for launch at the end of 2018.
