Queen Sofia of Spain has been testing an electric Peugeot iOn in Marivent Palace in Mallorca, where the Spanish Royal Family is spending their summer break.
She called the electric iOn “phenomenal” and was said to have accepted Peugeot’s offer as a show of support for electric cars in Spain, Telegraph reported.
The new iOn can go 150km on the European driving cycle on its lithium ion batteries. The iOn’s batteries can be charged in 6 hours using a conventional 220V socket or up to 80% in 30 minutes via a fast charging system. It’s powered by a 64hp motor with 180Nm of torque.
The Peugeot iOn will be available from the end of this year for a monthly rental of less than €500.
