A car-cum-scooter "green" concept vehicle has been unveiled in London by Peugeot.

Known as the BB1, the electric vehicle can seat up to four adults in a space of just 8.2ft (2.5m).

Giving off zero emissions and aimed at urban motorists, the BB1 is easy to park and has a range of 75 miles (120km).

It is fitted with two electric motors mounted in the rear wheels and has two lithium-ion battery packs which supply energy to the motors.

The passenger compartment ventilation keeps operating in daylight thanks to solar panels on the roof of the vehicle.

Peugeot's UK managing director Jon Goodman said at last night's unveiling: "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."
