Seven-seat version of Fiat 500L revealed with new ‘Multi Purpose Wagon’
Peugeot Ion and Pod Point tested
Last week I had a Pod Point electric car charging station fitted at my home. The reason? There was a great deal to be had, plus there's an increasing need to test electric vehicles for MSN Cars. And I love future technology.
Just days after the work was completed Peugeot slashed the price of its Ion electric car to £12,055. Suddenly electric car motoring makes brilliant sense. One major hurdle - the very high purchase price - is instantly kicked into touch.
Here's how you go about extracting one of the best motoring deals on the market today.

I tried electric cars at the Renault Z Road Show in Glasgow. The Twizy was a bit noisy, but certainly caused a deal of interest when it was going round the city streets. The model I fancied, the Clio-sized Zoe wasn't available to drive, but there was a display model.
I'd happily have an electric car because my journeys are almost always within the limits of their battery and the silence of the other Renault models I tried was just amazing.
The Peugeot mentioned here is fine, but the car looks tall and narrow on the road. I'm waiting for a Twingo-sized electric car from Renault. Now that would be perfect for me and at the prices quoted for its recharging, it's now very much cheaper than petrol or diesel.
