Last night saw the unveiling of Peugeot's innovative new concept, the BB1 at The Hospital Club in London.
With its BB1 concept, Peugeot has created a totally new solution to the current and future needs of urban mobility. The BB1 concept is the first ever full electric vehicle that can seat up to four adults in a space of just 2.5m.
This compact vehicle is a fusion between car and scooter, whilst offering passengers a safer, more comfortable and weatherproof environment. Other advantages of this ground-breaking concept are that it has zero emissions, is easy to park and has a range of 75 miles, making it a perfect choice for city centre transport.
Jon Goodman, Managing Director of Peugeot Motor Company comments; "Peugeot is constantly pooling its expertise and creativity to design particularly innovative and original projects. The BB1 is the brainchild of this successful collaboration."
The BB1 concept pushes back the boundaries, creating an inventive, fun, expressive and stylish vehicle. This electric vehicle is a logical addition to a vehicle line up that incorporates Peugeot bicycles, scooters, cars and light commercial vehicles. It aims to explore new ground with regards to urban mobility, with the environment close at heart."
The BB1 concept is both environmentally friendly and efficient, fitted with two electric motors mounted in the rear wheels maximizing the interior space and two lithium-ion battery packs supplying energy to the respective electric motors located under the right and left-hand rear seats. The BB1 emits no loud noise outside the vehicle and, above all, no pollutant emissions. The passenger compartment ventilation keeps operating in daylight thanks to the solar panels placed on the roof of the vehicle.
The Peugeot BB1 will be on show in Covent Garden, London from 10 am until 7 pm, on the 7th and 8th November, enabling the general public to have a close up look into the future of urban mobility.
