Average running costs are estimated at £1.72 per 93 miles. Carried out overnight or during off-peak hours, recharging costs can be reduced further. The iOn is tailored at city dwellers looking to cut their carbon footprint and save money on fuel, road tax and the London Congestion Charge. With zero emissions, road tax and the Congestion Charge is not valid for motorists using the iOn.

In some city centres, for example Westminster (in London), parking is free for zero emissions vehicles.

Zero CO2 emissions equate to free road tax and free entry to the London Congestion Charge.

Until electric cars become a common sight on UK roads then the reliability and durability will be questioned. According to Peugeot the lithium battery can be charged as much you like but they do have a ten-year lifespan. There’s few mechanical parts so this should help reliability and make it cheap to service. Peugeot Connect Assistance is available when you own/lease an iOn.

Press the Peugeot Lion button and this automatically connects the user with the helpline. The vehicle’s location is determined automatically and emergency or repair services can quickly be dispatched to the scene.
