Peugeot designed a new concept – the new EX1. Powered by electric engines, each producing 170 horsepower and 240Nm, for a total of 340 horsepower, the new EX1 goes from 0 to 60 in under 3.5 seconds, and reaches its top speed of 162 mph in just 6.6 seconds.
The outer design has multiple purposes. Of course it gives the car a great aerodynamic performance and a brilliant sporty look, but it also enables the car to have a very small weight of only 750kg. The body of the car is made from carbon fiber, and has a length of only 3.54 meters.
The windshield is almost non-existent. The EX1 only has two seats, and its body looks like it’s made for track, so the word Roadster would be an appropriate part in the car’s name. The large exhaust is placed behind the driver’s head, and increases the similarity to the fictional “Bat-Mobile”.
Peugeot stated their intentions of giving their EX1 the best performance there is on any electric car, and so they’ve done. The amazing acceleration and speed is not only beyond reached for any other electric car, but also better than some internal combustion sport correspondents as well.
This car looks great and handles even better –it’s a pitty that Peugeot hasn’t released any information about a release date or price.
