Maybe it’s slow sales, maybe it’s PSA’s commitment to to environment, but they’ve just reduced the price of their electric city commuters – Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero – from £33,155 to £26,216 before £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant. Take the grant into account, and it’s £21,216. Still sounds like a lot for the car you receive in return.

PSA knows many people would struggle to convince themselves it’s a good deal, even if they like the car, so they also offer a monthly rental from £249 per month over a 3-year term and comprehensive coverage across the country through specialist dealer network. This is the best they can do considering the cost of making an electric car.

. Despite slightly different looks, both these cars are the same underneath, and both are based on the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, itself not doing so well in sales. The thing is, for yoru 20 something grand you get a car that is small, has no styling as such, has to be plugged-in half of the day, and is out of puff before the other half comes to an end.

You are much better off with a small diesel or hybrid.
