I used to remember my days sat on the back of a stealth electric powered milk Float, Unaware that I was sat on the back of the future of automotive glory.
Now Peugeot has released a video showing the EX1 concept setting a new electric vehicle lap record at the Nürburgring.
Driven by Stéphane Caillet, the one-off prototype completed the 20.8 km Northloop in 9 minutes and 1.3 seconds at an average speed of 138.3 km/h (85.9 mph).
The sound is pretty bizarre coming from this car and is in need of some v8 forced induction to make the video complete, but the EX1 concept is powered by two electric motors that produce a combined output of 340 PS and immediately has 480 Nm torque.
Detailed performance specifications haven’t been announced, but the car previously set an unofficial EV acceleration record of 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds.
