Abstract
The elastic electroproduction of $\rho$ mesons is studied at HERA with the H1 detector for a photon virtuality in the range $1 < Q^2 < 60~{\rm GeV^2}$ and for a hadronic centre of mass energy in the range 30 < W < 140 GeV. The shape of the ($\pi \pi$) mass distribution in the $\rho$ resonance region is measured as a function of Q2. The full set of $\rho$
