Peugeot&Citroën electric car buyers invited to France's Min. of Eco.

Peugeot and Citroën electric car buyers invited to France's Ministry of Ecology as first beneficiaries of the "super bonus" incentive.

Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero buyers were among those invited by Ségolène Royal, the French Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, to an event recognizing the first beneficiaries of the €10,000 "super bonus“ incentive introduced by the French government on 1 April 2015.

The purpose of the new incentive is to promote the renewal of the fleet of cars on France's roads by replacing diesel vehicles aged 14 years or more with cars that pollute less.

The super bonus allows consumers to combine the existing €6,300 low-emissions rebate with an additional €3,700 when they purchase or lease a new car emitting no more than 20g CO2/km, i.e. an electric car.

The sales directors for the Peugeot and Citroën brands said they expected the measure to boost the number of electric vehicles sold in France, starting this year.

In order to capitalise on this latest incentive, Peugeot and Citroën have begun advertising highly attractive long-term leasing offers:

  • €99 per month for a Peugeot iOn, plus a free electric bicycle for the first 150 buyers.
  • €89 per month for the long-term lease of a Citroën C-Zero.
