We know that sales of electric cars (EV) are woeful, and that nothing more than a handful of private buyers have actually bought in to the dream that is an electric car future.
With that in mind it’s no surprise that the enormous list price of the Citroen C-Zero EV and Peugeot iOn EV have been slashed by £6,939, bringing the price down to a still silly £26,216, although, at least for now, you can still get the taxpayer bribe of £5,000 bringing the price you pay down to £21,216.
For private buyers it still makes no sense, but companies and company car drivers will see real benefits. But Peugeot and Citroen are still trying to get private buyers to buy in to the EV dream with contract hired deals available over three years at £249 a month for 30,000 miles.
What you get if you care to stump up £21k or £249 a month is a small city car that offers a 64bhp electric motor, takes around six hours to charge and will probably do 50-60 miles in the real world on a charge.
You pays your money and takes your choice.
