Peugeot VLV was an electric microcar from Peugeot in 1942. VLV stood for Voiture Légère de Ville (Light City Car). The car's announcement, on 1 May 1941, triggered some surprise, since Peugeot was the only one of France's large automakers to show interest in electric propulsion at this time.
It was powered by four 12V batteries placed under the hood giving it a claimed top speed of 36 kilometres per hour (22 mph) and a range of 50 miles (80 km).
The VLV was built during the war as a way to side-step fuel restrictions imposed on non-military users by the occupying German forces. Yet, it was banned after only 377 examples were built
