The prices of the Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero electric vehicles have dropped by £6939 to £21,216 (which include the government’s £5000 plug-in car grant). These two companies confirmed that it will improve the availability of the two cars. Citroën is boosting the sales of its C-Zero and will increase from 11 dealerships to 21.

Meanwhile, the On will be sold be sold in 23 Peugeot dealerships. These companies have presented new contract hire rates, which cost from £249 each month, and are based over three years and 30,000 miles. Powering the iOn and C-Zero electric pair is a rear-mounted 64bhp electric motor.

Meanwhile, the 88-cell, 16kWh lithium ion battery pack is positioned under the centre of the vehicle. Charging it from a domestic socket takes six hours. It’s expected to go 93 miles in free-flowing traffic with the air-con turned off. If the car goes through a crowded city while the air-con blows air, its distance will be cut to about 46 miles.

Electric vans could be presented into the ranges in Peugeot and Citroën. The Peugeot Partner electric van and Citroen electric Berlingo van will be offered in the government’s maximum £8000 EV grant.

Phil Robson, Peugeot UK’s Fleet and Used Car Director, commented: “2011 marked a return of EVs for Peugeot in the UK. We want to continue to develop our EV strategy as the technology becomes more accepted by consumers and the charging infrastructure continues to develop. Peugeot has been at the forefront of the EV market with iOn and this latest development is a key part in our low CO2 strategy.”
