PSA/Peugeot-Citroen to offer advanced telematics system in its upcoming electric vehicles

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

PSA/Peugeot-Citroen SA's upcoming electric vehicles will be equipped with a dedicated, advanced telematics system, which makes them distinctive from the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, the model where they were based.

When the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero debuts later this year, they will be offered with the new version of Peugeot Connect, PSA's onboard communications and navigation system as standard.

In an interview earlier this month with Automotive News Europe, PSA electric vehicles director Ayoul Grouvel said that this will allow them to get real-time data on the actual use of the cars and the status of their batteries. He explained that these data will be vital to improve their understanding of how the electric vehicles are being used.

This system will also give peace of mind to customers because if the electric car's battery runs out of power, the car owners can get help with a click on a button anytime of the day.

The car is linked to a satellite-based navigation system, meaning that the PSA call center agent can send assistance to the exact location. [via autonews - sub. required]
