The goal is to price the little EV below 20.000 €.
The listed price is still 23.790 € but you can already find it on the web at 19.990 €.
This price drop comes after Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot iOn had the price reduced to 17.850 €. Some dealers in Germany were even selling them for 14.454 €. Now the price has stabilized at around 17.000 € in most dealers, they give a 8 -10 % discount.
In relation to its French brothers i-MiEV some advantages. Like a bigger battery (16 kWh vs 14,5 kWh) giving it more range (160 km vs 150 km NEDC), LED headlights and both front seats are heated (in C-Zero and iOn only the driver’s seat is heated).
It’s up to you to decide which one you like better. I think the triplets are great cars to have while waiting for second generation electric cars. But I have to say that the price shouldn’t be more than 15.000 € before any government incentive (if available). At 21.000 € we can already find online a new Nissan Leaf with batteries included.
This price drop will come gradually to other European countries. Contact your local dealers and ask them to hurry up if you’re interested.
