Three makes a pattern, and four is a trend: Opel's RAK e concept, the Volkswagen NILS, Audi's Urban concept and now the VeLV prototype from Peugeot. It's electrified urban commuting with a science-fiction twist.

Short for Vehicule electrique Leger de Ville (literally "light electric vehicles in city"), the VeLV is named and styled in homage to the 1941 Peugeot VLV.

And if you thought electric vehicles was a new thing, surprise: the VLV was powered by electric batteries alone, Peugeot's effort to side-step the fuel restrictions of the occupying Nazi forces.

Like its forebear, the new VeLV concept takes on a trike-like appearance, with a narrower track at the rear than at the front.

Unlike the single-seater NILS and the two-seater RAK e and Urban concepts, the VeLV offers room for three occupants. The driver's seat sits forward in its own row, with two seats positioned snugly in the rear.

Power for the VeLV is provided by a 20kW electric motor, with a driving range of 100 kilometres and a top speed of 110km/h.

Peugeot says the VeLV has undergone Euro NCAP-approved crash tests, achieving compliance for use on public roads. Like Opel's RAK e, the French carmaker plans to put the VeLV into production if government and public interest is there.
