Peugeot UK has announced changes to its
Electric Vehicle (EV) Sales programme, with an on-the-road price
reduction to £21,216 (after the Government’s £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant),
a monthly rental from £249 per month over a 3-year term and
comprehensive coverage across the country through 23 dedicated EV
Specialist Peugeot dealerships.
Peugeot’s EV range will grow at the
beginning of 2013 with the introduction of a new electric Partner van,
which will qualify for the recently announced extension to the
Government’s EV grant, with a maximum of £8,000 support towards the
purchase price of electric commercial vehicles.
The EV range, along with the recently
introduced world’s first diesel-electric HYbrid4, displays Peugeot’s
commitment to addressing the environmental challenges facing carmakers,
communities, businesses and private car owners.
Peugeot has introduced a number of
technological solutions and services, adapted to an array of customer
needs and designed to drive powerful breakthroughs in fuel efficiency
and CO2 emissions. These include the introduction of Stop &
Start Systems, diesel-electric hybrids and zero-emission vehicles,
enabling Peugeot to increase its leadership in the European low-carbon
vehicle segment and extend its expertise to other markets. The Peugeot
iOn has also been included in the development of existing mobility
solutions like ‘Mu by Peugeot’, a personalised mobility service, based
on a new vision of mobility.
Phil Robson, Peugeot UK’s Fleet and
Used Car Director, commented: “2011 marked a return of EVs for Peugeot
in the UK. We want to continue to develop our EV strategy as the
technology becomes more accepted by consumers and the charging
infrastructure continues to develop. Peugeot has been at the forefront
of the EV market with iOn and this latest development is a key part in
our low CO2 strategy.”
