Peugeot Electric Car EX1 Concept CarsAt a time when the electric motor once again becomes 100% real for Peugeot, with the i0n about to go on sale, the Peugeot Electric Car EX1 Concept Cars propels us into a new dimension of raw emotion. Efficient styling The pure styling of this two-seater roadster is in keeping with its mechanical design, like a kind of 'exoskeleton' highlighting the light-weight nature that guided the vehicle's creation.
The design of the body incorporates Peugeot's new stylistic design codes, first seen on the SR1 concept car earlier this year, with its 'floating' front grille and flowing contours. Polished aluminium components adorn the door surrounds in a reference to the RCZ and BB1.
Peugeot has created an all-new electric car bearing the alphanumeric appellation EX1, which it will show at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. This car and the images are real. The 100% electric sports car Peugeot’s latest concept car is a visually striking two-seater roadster with a futuristic styling and an original architecture, designed to offer intense driving sensations.
Peugeot Electric Car EX1 Concept CarsThe electric motor is a potential source of new driving sensations thanks to its exceptional acceleration capabilities, but also because it is silent in operation and makes the car very easy to drive (no need for a gearbox). On the EX1 sports car concept, two electric motors are used, one on each axle, each with a peak output of 125 kW (250 kW / 340 bhp in total), and an immediately available constant maximum torque of 240 Nm at the front and rear.
The Peugeot EX1 Concept car benefits from characteristics that give it a high enough level of performance not only to leave behind the city centre, the preferred territory of electric vehicles, but also to challenge acceleration records. Its lightness, weight distribution and aerodynamics, the torque and power of its two electric motors and its high-output lithium-ion battery are just some of the characteristics that make this a car capable of lightning acceleration: the latter can exceed 1G of gravitational force.
Indeed the EX1 concept has already broken the following international records (approved by the International Automobile Federation) for an electric-powered terrestrial vehicle. This series of records was established, by Nicolas Vanier, the famous French explorer and film-maker ("The Last Trapper", "Wolf") who drove the EX1 concept car.
