PEUGEOT iOn review

NGC verdict 16.05.2011

Feels like a Rolls-Royce compared to a G-Wiz, but not as salubrious as the Nissan LEAF. If you can cope with the extra attention until the iOn becomes a more familiar sight, this egg-shaped four-seater could make sense if you tend to make shorter journeys.

Statistics suggest the average town commute is less than seven miles each way, so theoretically the iOn should satisfy most motorist's needs. Peugeot estimates electric cars will take four per cent of the EU new car market by 2020 and hopes to be selling around 50,000 iOns by 2015, which seems over-optimistic to me.
