SEVEN seater showdown! Is Citroen’s £32k eBerlingo BETTER than Mercedes’ £55k EQB? / Electrifying


Have you got children? Or friends? Do your children have friends? Do you sometimes need to transport more than five people without making the extras lie in the boot? Then you’ll need a seven-seat car.

Unless you upgrade to what is essentially an electric minibus, you’ve got a choice of two seven seaters here in the UK. The Mercedes EQB, or the mighty Citroen eBerlingo XL.

Once you do a little digging, there isn’t much electric choice for larger families. Yes, there’s supposed to be a seven-seat option for the Tesla Model Y, but good luck ordering it. Same goes for the six-or-seven-seat Model X, even at more than 100-grand, because that car is missing in action in the UK.

The VW ID Buzz is getting both a six and seven-seat option, but that’s not going to arrive for a while, and like we said, after that you’re into Mercedes eVito territory, and that’s more luxury airport hotel transfer than school drop-off.

If your choice boils down to these two, which is the better car? Join Nicki and Tom as they compare the two. Is the Mercedes really worth £55,310 price tag, or does the plucky Citroen e-Berlingo deliver the goods (and the kids) for far less? As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
