(VIDEO) PSA updates its Twizy competitor, VELV 2.0, towards a production vehicle?

Revealed in world premiere at the ADEME Innovation Forum 6 months ago, the Vélv is a light urban electric vehicle that surfs on the micro-cars wake.

Although it is still as simple technology demonstrator, the drivetrain is working, therefore PSA would only have to put a price and decide which brand would sell…

Compared to the Renault Twizy, it offers an additional seat, a real trunk (30 liters for the Twizy) and a passenger compartment 100% enclosed, if it sees production it should be priced above the Twizy (from € 6990 to the 45kph version and € 7690 for the version 80kph).
Performance lean more in favor of the Vélv offering more power and a top speed of 110kph which would make it (in theory) highway capable.

A version 2.0 with a design that evolves – is an interesting sign: the project is more than a "one-off” concept !
Through this concept PSA highlights the work of subcontractors that you can see below.

The 2.0 Vélv gets more visibility with now a back glass, whereas the previous version didn’t have any.

Two elements are also modified, the interior is optimized to provide more space and its construction uses lightweight materials to reduce weight (fiberglass, polyester, aluminum and thermoformed plastic).
