French electric vehicle manufacturer Venturi has built the 250th Citroen Berlingo electric van for the French post office, La Poste.

In an effort to cut its CO2 emissions by 20% by 2015, La Poste has a fleet of electric vehicles and trains its drivers in eco-friendly driving techniques.

The 250 electric Berlingos will be used by postmen delivering mail in 13 urban areas in France: Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Nantes, Strasbourg, Rennes, Lille, Grenoble, Clermont-Ferrand, Limoges, Pau and Quimper.

The electric Berlingos are assembled in France in the Venturi-MVE (Manufacture de VĂ©hicules Electriques) facility in Solesmes, France.
