PEUGEOT ION * FROM £17,034
The perfect city car - small, silent, economic to run, and 100% electric, so it's kind to the environment. The Peugeot iOn is a green car with a difference.
For a small car, the iOn packs a big technological punch.
The iOn’s lithium-ion battery stores much more energy than the old NiCd batteries of the 1990s. You can fully recharge it in about nine hours from a 220V domestic plug socket, using the five-metre cable that comes with the car. Special 380V recharging stations for electric cars, located throughout the UK, will replace half the battery’s capacity in just 15 minutes.
STYLE AND VERSATILITY
The iOn may be compact, but it packs a surprising punch in terms of style and versatility. Its funky styling gives it a distinctive edge and makes for an eye-catching supermini, plus the tiny turning circle and electric power steering make it agile and manoeuvrable – perfect for city driving.
You don’t have to think about turning the lights on in the iOn – they’ll come on automatically as it gets dark.
