Citroen and Vauxhall electric MPVs get price reduction

Citroen, Vauxhall and Peugeot’s MPVs are also now electric-only, after all three brands axed the petrol and diesel versions of their van-based people carriers

Citroen e-Berlingo

Both Citroen and Vauxhall have cut the prices of their electric people carriers, following the reduction in the UK government’s plug-in car grant (PiCG) that was announced in December 2021. Along with Peugeot, they have also stopped selling petrol and diesel-engined versions of their van-derived MPVs, choosing to focus exclusively on electric power from now on.

The Citroen e-Berlingo with five seats now starts from £29,495, after the £1,500 grant has been deducted, while the long-wheelbase, seven-seater version has a £30,495 starting price. The more generously equipped e-Berlingo Flair XTR also costs £30,495, featuring luxuries like a panoramic sunroof and electric window blinds, but only comes in the short-wheelbase bodystyle.

Meanwhile, the five-seater version of its Vauxhall sister model, the Combo-e Life is priced from £29,610 after the PiCG grant has been applied, compared to £30,610 previously. Both seven-seat versions of the Combo-e Life have also received price reductions, with the standard and extended-wheelbase XL models starting from £30,110 and £30,210 respectively. That means the Combo e-Life XL is now only £100 more expensive than the standard seven-seater Combo-e Life.

Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life

The Citroen e-SpaceTourer and Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life are more practical still, offering seating for up to nine. The standard wheelbase e-SpaceTourer in entry-level Business trim now starts from £30,295 after the grant, rising to £30,495 for the longer XL model.

The Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life’s price has also been slashed, down from £32,135 to £30,295 after the grant. The long-wheelbase variant is now priced at £30,495, compared to £32,495 previously. Both models use the same 50kWh battery and 134bhp electric motor as the e-Berlingo and Combo-e Life, for a range of 143 miles compared to the seven-seater MPV's 174-mile range.
