Peugeot's all-electric BB1 will be on display in London's Covent Garden this weekend.

The BB1 is a cross between a car and a scooter, the BB1 is powered by two electric motors mounted in the rear wheels, and can store enough power in its lithium-ion batteries to travel 75 miles before needing a charge.

Unlike most electric city cars, the BB1 can seat four adults thanks to its layout and scooter-style controls.

Solar panels help to power the technology on board, and the vehicle can talk to a smart phone, so that drivers can seamlessly access their music, hands-free phone and sat-nav.

Where can I see it?
The BB1 is on show to the public in London's Covent Garden from 10am until 7pm on November 7 and 8. Look out for Peugeot BB1-branded rickshaws operating in central London, which will drive you to the display free-of-charge.
