Electric drive: Peugeot iOn

The Peugeot iOn is one of those electric car ?? s not only displayed at motor shows and ?? shows as a concept, but you will actually see in the daily street driving. Available from the beginning of 2011 and now, especially in city traffic already a familiar face. Cleaner driving, with 0 grams of emissions and no noise, which is tomorrow. Electric mobility has 0 grams of CO2 emissions. Driving with a cleaner not. And no sound in electric vehicles, so in that way it contributes to a better environment.

Electric driving

A whopping 90% of all journeys in everyday traffic are shorter than 60 kilometers. The Peugeot iOn has a fully charged battery has a range of 150 kilometers. So it is sufficient in most cases for a day ride. Especially in city traffic is sufficient to 150km more than enough. And if you do not have enough energy, the Peugeot iOn can be recharged from a regular power outlet. In six hours he was again fully charged. If you find the Peugeot iOn connects to a special charger, the charger with the battery can be recharged to 80% in an hour. There is already a considerable network of charging stations along the Dutch streets and roads, and that is intensifying.

The Peugeot iOn

The Peugeot iOn is a relative of the French-Japanese triplets: the Citro├źn C-Zero, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV and thus the Peugeot iOn. These cars share their technology and development. The cars have a 64 bhp / 180 Nm electric motor, coupled to a lithium-ion battery pack ?? s. These batteries ?? s retain their power when not in use. So the range is 150 kilometers. Mind you, use of options in the car such as the air conditioning to reduce the mileage considerably. The car ?? s have rear-wheel drive and a top speed of 130 kilometers per hour. When you use the car for commuting within the city traffic, that's more than enough. You can get along on the highway to drive a short distance.

All electric?

Electric driving is like the basis of previous text ideal and the question therefore arises: why do not we all drive in such a vehicle ?? s? As the main reason must surely be called the price. In the Netherlands, the starting price just above ?? 35.000, -. In the future, prices certainly fall, when the technology is developed and will be increasingly used. The high price the consumer will not cross the threshold at the current time. Business electric drive does embrace: sometimes to make a statement, sometimes for practical reasons and to be ready for the future. Thus, among others Greenwheels for several Peugeot iOn on the road.
