For a small car, the iOn packs a big technological punch.
The iOn’s lithium-ion battery stores much more energy than the old NiCd batteries of the 1990s. You can fully recharge it in about nine hours from a 220V domestic plug socket, using the five-metre cable that comes with the car. Special 380V recharging stations for electric cars, located throughout the UK, will replace half the battery’s capacity in just 15 minutes.
The Peugeot Connect USB box lets you listen to tracks from your MP3 player or ipod through the audio system, so you can have your entire music collection in the car with you. Bluetooth means you can also stream music wirelessly as well as make phone calls, safely hands-free.
The iOn comes with an RDE CD Audio system, as standard, so you can play your favourite tunes on the move.
Peugeot Connect SOS will automatically let the emergency services know if the airbags in your iOn inflate, or the seatbelt pre-tensioners activate. It will also tell them exactly where you are, or you can contact them manually yourself. Peugeot Connect Assistance brings you roadside assistance whenever you need it.
