We all have been hearing lots about Peugeot’s new upcoming iOn, right? The car maker has now released fresh info on the electric car that runs on an 88-cell lithium-ion battery pack.
From what I get to know, the Li-Ion battery pack under the iOn hood would power the electric motor that boasts of 47 kW (64 PS / 63 hp) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque. That could mean that the cute little iOn would have the capability to race from 0-100 km/h in 15.9 seconds.
Compared with the Mitsubishi iMiev, another electric beauty you all have been hearing of, the Peugeot iOn would travel 10 km less the distance, up to 50 km before further recharge.
But then ask anyone, and they are likely to say okay to that aspect because most electric car buyers wouldn’t be looking at travelling more than 60 km per day.
The charging part can be taken care of with a standard 220V household outlet in and you would need to plug in the car for around six hours for a full recharge.
Compared to the iMiev, it looks like that Peugeot has taken extra pains to make the iOn look awesome. According to WCF, the car would come with a pearlescent white / chrome Peugeot logo, alloy wheels, fog lamps, and automatic headlights.
The interiors will have remote control central locking, air conditioning, electric windows, and an MP3/CD audio system with Bluetooth / USB connectivity.
The add-ons would include a cold weather package that includes a heated driver seat and a navigation system. When it arrives in dealerships, the iOn will be made available on an all-inclusive five year lease for €499 a month.
I guess we will have to wait to know as to where all Peugeot would be taking its iOn to. Here’s a videoin case you need to know more about the iOn:
