PSA has unveiled an updated version of their interesting VeLV concept. The revised variant looks considerably more aggressive than the original concept. This would have to be a “three-wheel” EV which was developed in collaboration with the French Environment and Energy Management Agency ADEME. Given its size, the VeLV was designed for the city as it is 9.2 feet (2.8 meters) long and can seat up to three people. Aside from being small, the concept is also very light as it has a curb weight of only 1,543 lbs (700 kg). With an 8.5 kWh battery, the Peugeot VeLV is capable of providing a range of up to 62 miles (100 km) on a single charge.
The one-piece body of the Peugeot VeLV was manufactured from polyester resin, fiberglass and ABS PMMA self-colored thermoformed panels. The front of the car along with the doors is made from aluminum. PSA Peugeot Citroen says the car is able to comply with the most current crash standards for passenger vehicles.
That 8.5 kWh battery we’ve mentioned before motivates an electric motor which can develop up to 40 HP (30 kW), enough to allow the tiny city car to reach a top speed of 68 mph (110 km/h).
