The Peugeot EX-1 is an electric racecar concept by French automaker Peugeot. It debuted at the Paris 2010 Motor Show to celebrate the company’s 200th anniversary, making at the same time a demonstration of technological superiority.
Peugeot EX-1 is a purely electric vehicle equipped with two electric motors, one on each axle, with an output of 170PS. The EX-1 is, if not the fastest, one of the fastest electric cars ever manufactured. With a maximum power of 340PS and permanent four-wheel drive, the performance achieved is truly extraordinary. French explorer Nicolas Vanier and Chinese blogger Han-Han have ridden this car at two official events. Vanier has made an unofficial record of 3.49 seconds for 0-100km/h and an impressive figure of 1G lateral acceleration in 39 meters of drifting! Han-Han achieved 0-200 meters in 7.1 seconds and 0-400 meters in 12.7 seconds. These numbers render the EX-1 as the fastest electric vehicle to accelerate from a standstill.
