2011 Peugeot iOn

Submitted by on May 17, 2013 – 12:20 amNo Comment

2011 Peugeot iOn 3The environmental awareness expressed by governments, local authorities and citizens, combined with the development of new energy storage technologies, today gives the electric vehicle a new opportunity to put down roots in cities and their outlying areas.

Peugeot, the world leader in electric vehicles in terms of the number of Electric 106s it sold, takes a new step in emissions reductions by marketing the Peugeot iOn, the first new-generation 100% electric vehicle.

A NEW URBAN DRIVING EXPERIENCE: ZERO EMISSIONS, SILENT, PRACTICAL, RESPONSIVE

The Peugeot iOn, designed as the ideal car for the city and the suburbs, is targeted mainly at public services and businesses, but also at private individuals. This city run around combines remarkable packaging with good interior space, unrivalled handling, rigorous safety, and a high level of comfort enhanced by a generous standard specification. Added to this are the advantages inherent in electric technology, namely unprecedented silence, the absence of CO2 emissions and superb driveability.

To drive the Peugeot iOn means to experience a new tranquillity engendered by the car’s silent operation, the absence of vibrations from the power train and the simplicity of no gear changes. What’s more, the immediate availability of maximum torque allows efficient, linear acceleration that makes driving in traffic so much easier.

RANGE

Thanks to the energy management of its Lithiumion battery and optimised energy recovery during deceleration and braking, the range as per the European standard cycle is 150 km. In practical terms this is sufficient to cover the majority of a motorists’ daily trips, 90% of which are in fact less than 60 km. It takes 6 hours to fully recharge the battery using a traditional household socket. A quick charge using a special charging unit provides a 50% charge in only fifteen minutes, or 80% in thirty minutes. Bearing in mind that a conventional car is at a standstill for around 90% of the time when used in an urban or semi-urban context, the time needed to recharge the Peugeot iOn is entirely compatible with what motorists are used to.

UNBEATABLE RUNNING COSTS

With running costs between €1.50 and €2.00 per 100 km, the energy bill of the Peugeot iOn is unbeatable regardless of which recharging mode is used.Carried out overnight or during “off-peak hours” recharging costs can be reduced further and help optimise the use of available power produced by the electricity supply companies.

NO COMPROMISE ON SAFETY

Its standard equipment – six air bags, ESP, electronic brake force distribution (EBFD), emergency brake assist (EBA) – and the design of its structure, gives the Peugeot iOn the same level of safety equipment as a conventional modern car. At the design stage, strong emphasis was laid on the safety and durability of components of the electric power train. The battery components are contained in a rigid, hermetically-sealed casing ideally positioned under the passenger compartment floor for maximum protection in the event of an impact, in the area most resistant to deformation. This also improves the vehicle’s weight distribution by lowering the centre of gravity. Recharging of the battery, either by a special quick charge unit or by means of a standard electrical socket using a special connecting cable, is controlled automatically according to the monitored parameters of the individual battery cells.
