Developed for the year 2020, the Peugeot Velocite concept by designer Juan Carlos is an electric vehicle that has been designed for congested roads which will force people to ride in compact zero emission vehicles.
With a three-wheeled configuration, the Peugeot Velocite concept is powered by an electric engine and its sporty lines and compact design have been created to appeal to a younger audience.
Velocite’s low-resistance electric motor is housed inside the rear orbital wheel, whose center stays static. The outer wheel rotates and is driven directly by the motor.
The single swing-arm is located on the right side of the wheel and provides a motorcycle-like suspension setup for simplicity. While rolling downhill, the motor functions as a generator that recharges onboard batteries. [Juan Carlos via EcoFriend]
