Hi-Tech Peugeot a Cross Between Scooter and Car

Posted by Corey Kaster on November 17, 2009

Peugeot last week unveiled in London its radical rethink on electric urban cars, the BB1, during a 5-stop world tour, saying the car’s inspiration is a zippy Vespa scooter.

The four adults are positioned with the rear seat occupants’ legs wrapping around the front seat, in the same way that a passenger sits behind the driver of a motorbike.

The small car, not yet in production, has a solar cell-covered glass roof to power the AC and innovative reverse opening doors.

With a turning radius of just 3.5 meters and a mere 8 foot in length, it zooms about in traffic — and into parking spots –with great agility.
