    Was it Martin who coined the phrase "punishment car"? :biggrin:

    The C-Zero name is quite clever in some ways - for those not aware the other models in Citroen's range go from C1 to C8. I presume they are also trying to communicate "zero carbon" with it too.

    However, who wants to drive the 0th model? I think that might be a little too clever.

    I think it's a great name. Works for the motorcycle company.

    Review of the C-Zero (actually the Peugeot Ion) at The Register:http://www.reghardware.com/2011/06/20/review_cars_peugeot_ion/

    Summary: Better interior quality than the i-miev, makes for a good city car, especially in London to get the congestion charge exemption. Has AC-power in on one side of the car, and a 380V 3-phase DC input on the other.

    No details on how this new form of electricity works ;-)
