Peugoet steals Mitsubishi’s iMiEV to create iOn

Peugeot iOn fq

Mitsubishi and Peugeot have worked together before and now, they are at it again. The project they planning together is set to be very “green” and involves the introduction of the Peugeot iOn in Frankfurt this month. If the Peugeot iOn looks familiar to you it’s because it’s simply the Mitsubishi iMiEV sporting Peugeot’s badge up front. The French carmaker plans to launch the lithium ion battery-powered electric car in Europe at the end of 2010.

With 64 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque available, Peugeot is stating that the iOn’s range will be 130 km on a full charge. Plugging the car into a conventional 220V outlet will give it a full recharge in six hours. A fast-charger system will also be available, allowing the iOn to be charged to 80% capacity in just half an hour.

More will be revealed when the Frankfurt Motor Show kicks off later this month.
