French automaker Peugeot recently debuted a new concept car called the BB1 at the Frankfurt Auto show. The company wanted to provide a new solution to the challenges of driving a car in an urban environment. The BB1 has an overall length of just over 8 feet making it tiny in size. Yet the designers at Peugeot aimed to create enough space in the interior to seat four people. Instead of looking at traditional passenger cars for inspiration, the designers instead looked at two-wheeled vehicles for ideas of how to use ergonomics to maximize the interior space. The driver for instance is seated in a more vertical position. The floor mounted gas and brake pedals have been removed and those controls are located on the motorcycle-like steering handlebars.
