Modified Citroen Berlingo Van Sets Range Record at 621

By Brad Berman · 08, 2011

Modified Citroen electric van sets range with 621-mile trip.

range is often described as the heel of pure electric For routine daily driving of my LEAF. I almost never impinged by its 80 or so miles of range.

But every few weeks, an additional 50 or 60 would come in extremely

BEA-tricks. a German company sells electric car conversion recently demonstrated that any amount of range is possible, if and practicality are thrown out the door. great to know, but the key question What’s the best combination of EV and price?

BEA-tricks, headed by Daniel Sperling (no relation to the board member), fitted a Citroen Berlingo van with 10 battery packs that power the Smart Electric The resulting electric Berlingo van a whopping 180 kilowatt-hours’ worth of which consumed almost the rear compartment of the vehicle. the cheapest assessment of what amount of energy storage would put the Berlingo’s oversized pack price in the multiple of thousands of dollars.

Batteries consume most of the Berlingo’s cargo area.

Two drivers hopped in the electric van and from Flensburg, Germany to facility in Munich. The 621-mile took 17 hoursall on a single We still had charge remaining.

I suppose the demonstration has some PR grabbing the attention of the public and the myth that it’s impossible to use an EV for long-distance travel. it’s just good but expensive fun, with practical relevance. At this of the game, I’m not looking for a leap in EV range. I’d like to see a relatively affordable carmaybe about the same as a LEAFwith range in the neighborhood of 120 to 150

I know that it’s a matter of timeperhaps three right about the time my lease of the LEAF finishesbefore costs come down and that a reality.
