Peugeot Ion in Grantham & Stamford
The Peugeot iOn is a green car with a difference. Compact, quiet, and cheap to run, it delivers the ultimate in eco-friendly driving. The iOn's funky styling is immediately obvious, while the clever interior boasts more space than you might expect. But where this car really delivers is its all-electric powertrain and lithium-ion battery. Nippy acceleration from 18-35mph in just 3.5 seconds means you're never trailing at the lights. A total range of 93 miles enables most to complete a week of daily commutes too. You even get superior interior comfort, innovative on-board technology, and impressive safety features.
The Peugeot iOn's design is fun yet functional. For example, a tiny turning circle and electric power steering make it extremely agile and manoeuvrable in the city. The interior has also been cleverly designed to make all the controls easily accessible.
Although perfectly suited to urban life, the Peugeot iOn can also cope with long stretches thanks to a top speed of 80mph. Peugeot Connect technology affords state-of-the-art audio, multimedia, and sat-nav systems, while automatic air conditioning comes as standard too.
The Peugeot iOn's interior is surprisingly spacious with lots of additional storage compartments. You can fully recharge it in about nine hours from a 220V domestic plug socket, whereas special 380V recharging stations replace half the battery's capacity in 15 minutes.
Living with it
There's no need to be worried about the reliability of electric vehicles. The iOn comes with a drivetrain warranty of 5 years/40,000 miles and a battery warranty of 8 years/60,000 miles. The rest of the car is warrantied for 3 years/60,000 miles.
