As Government support, media and public interest in electric cars ramps up, Peugeot is appointing 22 of it existing dealers, located across the UK, to sell and service its 100% electric car, the new Peugeot iOn.
These "specialist" dealers are all geographically aligned to the 'Plugged-in Places' which will receive Government support to build the necessary charging infrastructure to support electric vehicles.
There are three dealers in the Midlands, two in the East of England, two in the North East, two in Scotland, two in London and one each in Milton Keynes, Manchester, and Northern Ireland. There are another seven across the South, South West and South Wales and one in Leeds.
Each "specialist" dealer will have available an Peugeot i0n demonstrator, dedicated electric vehicle charging point, specially trained staff and all necessary specialist servicing equipment.
Customers wanting to make the most of the Government Plug-In Car Grant of £5,000 can order a Peugeot i0n straightaway and expect to be driving emissions-free by February 2011. To help, Peugeot has developed a bespoke leasing offer for the new Peugeot iOn and it is available on a four year, 40,000 mile personal lease scheme from £415 per month plus VAT with zero deposit.
The Peugeot iOn will play an important part in developing Peugeots commitment to providing a wide range of low carbon transport solutions. 100% electric provides just one of the solutions for urban transport needs alongside a range of other technology that Peugeot will bring to market over the coming months.Published 12 January 2011
