With more than 20,000 financing files created since the launch of electric social leasing in France, Stellantis is undoubtedly the group that benefits most from this customer contribution. Today, the group is announcing the availability of MPVs in this social leasing offer, including the Berlingo, which is becoming very attractive.
Given the immense success of this system, which was initially limited to a maximum of 25,000 files, the government seems to want to go further and expects a total of 40,000 to 60,000 orders over the course of the year. This is a boon for manufacturers, and in particular for Stellantis, the group that is making the greatest effort to make this system a success, with 20,000 orders already placed.
The French government's social leasing scheme makes electric vehicles truly accessible and Citroën has one of the most affordable offers with the new C3 from €54 per month and the C4 from €129 per month, a real success with more than 1,000 orders. The brand is now going one step further by offering the new, restyled Berlingo as part of this social leasing scheme with a particularly attractive offer. The redesigned version of Citroën's successful MPV can be ordered from €139/month, which is cheaper than a Fiat 600 or a Peugeot 2008, much more spacious and modular, and only €10/month more expensive than the Citroën C4. A particularly well-placed offer for the Berlingo, which should have a significant impact on orders for the MPV.
A total of 12 Stellantis brand models are eligible for the social leasing scheme, which, given its success, has a good chance of being extended and reinforced with up to 60,000 files throughout the year. This bodes well for order intake, particularly for Citroën, which seems to be succeeding thanks to these very accessible offers. The availability of the Berlingo will undoubtedly contribute to this success, as it is the only MPV to be so accessible alongside the group's cousins.
