Peugeot has done its best to make everything seem familiar so as not to scare away newcomers to electric cars. The drive selector looks like a regular auto gearbox shifter, for instance, and the battery-condition dial has been styled like a fuel gauge. The oddest thing about the driving position is that it forces you to sit high up and some drivers may struggle to get comfortable.
Peugeot ION Hatchback space & practicality
The car is billed as a four-seater, but it depends who the four are. Headroom isn't the problem, but adults in the rear will be short of kneeroom, so they'll be kneading the backs of people in front through the thinly padded seats. There's not much boot space with four aboard, either.
Peugeot ION Hatchback equipment
Peugeot has equipped the car for the urban conditions it has been designed to run in and for the governmental and business users it is aimed at. There's air-conditioning and power steering, for example, plus electric windows to make it easier when extracting tickets or paying at multi-storey car parks.
