The BodyBoard. Wow, the Peugeot Design Competition really throws up some funky concept vehicles, eh?
BodyBoard – the lie-down electric go-kart. The BoadyBoard rider lies head first in a harness, getting a speed sensation blast just centimeters above the tarmac. Propulsion comes via the powerful electric engines inside each wheel that are powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The BodyBoard also has the lowest centre of gravity possible – it’s below the axle line. Along with the bird’s eye view and four powerful inside-the-wheel electric motors with linear power delivery are big fat sticky racing tyres, offering G-forces not possible in anything this side of a Formula One car.
