Mitsubishi MiEV’s French brothers, Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero now officialy cost £ 16,995, to this price you can deduct £ 5,000 of the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) and pay £ 11,995 for the electric car.
Truth to be said, for the last couple of years the French brothers were already on sale for £ 12,995 in some dealers.
But now that the lower price is officially displayed in Citroen and Peugeot’s websites, these electric cars should get more attention.
I think that they should dropped the prices to at least £ 14,286 and they would also get the £ 5,000 grant. The PiCG is limited to 35% off the cost of a car, up to a maximum of £5,000.
In my opinion this grant is designed to keep the electric car prices artificially high. A better incentive would be reduced VAT for electric cars.
