Different versions

Hello,

I am in the process of getting one of the triplets (i.e. Mitsubishi i-MiEV / Peugeot iOn / Citroën C-Zero) and I am a bit puzzled on what I see. I am searching on mobile.de and stumping upon 49kW, 35kW and 29kW versions of the triplets. Are there really so many versions of the motor? Or is this something completely different?

On a similar note, which model year should I avoid, or is there a particularly good model when it comes to battery/motor that should make me spend some extra?

What's a 'triplet'?? Been here for 7 years and never heard that term before

To my knowledge, every model of the iMiEV uses the same electric motor

All have identical everything other than the drive battery. The Imiev always has a 16kwh battery, the others are 14kwh I believe. After 2012 they have better battery chemistry, but not much difference to be honest. Unsure what your kW figures relate to, but I think it may be the different power outputs on non-EU cars (remember reading something somewhere).

Anyway, not much to differentiate between European cars. Personally I like the Imiev interior the best, but the electrical side is largely identical. I dont think the IOn/ C-zero have the B mode (full regen), but it can be obtained (post on here about that).

Minor differences in IMIEV trim post 2012. If I was looking, id get a post 2012 car that has benefited from a mild climate... not too hot or cold, and preferably not lived by the sea all its life.
