May 31st, 2010 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

This eco-friendly vehicle was designed by Juan Carlos, who envisioned the car of 2020, when cities stuffed with vehicles will force people to switch to electric and hybrid cars.

This compact Peugeot Velocite is a three-wheel vehicle that features an electric engine.

The designer thought about creating a car that would boast sporty lines and a look that would appeal to young people.

It is worth mentioning that the car’s low-resistance electric engine is incorporated in the Velocite’s rear orbital wheel.

The suspension, similar to that of a motorcycle, is provided by a single swing-arm mounted on the right side of the wheel.

When the car goes downhill, its electric engine serves as a generator, recharging the battery pack.
