Police put Peugeot electric vehicles through their paces

POLICE officers in Coventry are driving two electric-powered Peugeot 106s, donated by Peugeot.

The cars are based at Chace Avenue police station in Coventry, and will be used by the force's officers for the next 12 months as back-up transport and to promote police initiatives.

The zero emission vehicles have a top speed of 56 mph and can accelerate from 0 - 31 mph in 8.3 seconds. The vehicle's battery has a 50-mile range and can be recharged from a standard domestic socket in six hours. A total of 253 Peugeot electric vehicles are currently in use around the UK at present.
