Peugeot iOn (2011–)

Model History

August 2009

i0n "zero-emissions" electric vehicle coming at the end of 2010, developed from Mitsubishi i-MIVEC and aimed at both retail and fleet customers.

3,474mm (11’ 5”) long x 1,792mm (5’ 11”) wide (inc mirrors), 1,475mm (4’ 10”) wide (mirrors folder) x 1,608mm (5’ 3”) high

The i0n will have a potential range of 80 miles due to the use of lithium-ion batteries and will be the ideal solution for the ever-increasing challenges of urban mobility versus environmental protection.

With four doors and four seats, a compact length of 3.48 m and a turning circle of 4.50 m, it will be ideal for busy congested city centres. It develops a maximum power output of 64 bhp and a torque of 180 Nm and, with its maximum speed of 80 mph, it will have all the performance it needs in this busy environment. It has an operating range of 80 miles on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries and they can be recharged in six hours using a conventional mains power supply or recharged to 80% capacity within thirty minutes, thanks to its fast charging system.

These performance levels allow this "zero-emission" city car to offer a good level of versatility, comparable in performance and comfort to a small conventional internal combustion engine vehicle.

It also includes some innovative functions, thanks in particular to the "localised communication unit". This unit not only authorises the emergency call system for which Peugeot is a leader in terms of deployment throughout Europe (location of vehicles at the time of an accident and triggering the dispatch of suitable emergency services) but also authorises data transfer (battery status, distance covered, distance to travel before maintenance is due, etc...) thus providing assistance especially for fleet operators.
