The Peugeot iOn is arguably the best possible vehicle for driving around town. Extremely compact, very nimble and supremely efficient, this adorable automobile will slot into spaces that other city cars struggle with – and it’s powered by electricity.
The quirkily styled iOn features large windows that let lots of natural light into the cabin, and provide excellent visibility for the driver. The car rides on stylish and efficient 15-inch alloy wheels too, and features power-operated and heated door mirrors that are housed in smartly contrasting black shells. A five-door body style ensures that entry and exit for rear-row passengers – and access to the luggage compartment – is never a chore.
Inside, there’s room for four, and the iOn’s high roofline ensures that even tall occupants are provided with plenty of headroom. The driver is treated to a good position and provided with a leather-clad steering wheel. Front and rear electric windows, semi-automatic air-conditioning and climate control all help to deliver just the right cabin temperature. The car’s 166-litre boot space can quickly be increased to 860 litres, thanks to split-folding rear seats, which means there is always enough room for shopping.
The iOn is powered by a 64bhp electric motor. As soon as the accelerator is engaged, a peak torque of 180Nm is delivered, ensuring the iOn propels forwards. The vehicle is able to go from 0-60mph in approximately 15.7 seconds, which is more than adequate when navigating traffic-congested streets. The vehicle is capable of a top speed of 81mph too, and produces a near-silent ride. Upon a full charge, a 93-mile range is available, and with rapid charging, the battery reaches 80 percent in just half an hour. Naturally, the iOn produces no CO2 emissions whatsoever, and there’s never any need to queue up at the petrol station to pay for fuel.
Technology and safety
For your listening pleasure, a four-speaker sound system is included, featuring DAB radio, an AM/FM tuner and an MP3-compatible CD player. Bluetooth connectivity features too, facilitating audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
The iOn is fitted with numerous driver aids, such as Electronic Stability Control and an Anti-lock Braking System. Exterior lighting includes height-adjustable, dusk-sensing headlamps and front fog lamps, each providing welcome illumination in a range of conditions. Passive safety features such as six airbags and ISOFIX anchor points help to ensure that occupants young and old are protected at all times.
