EX1 Concept previews future electric sports cars, says Peugeot

Article by Christian A., on October 21, 2010

According to Peugeot, the EX1 Concept unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, previews the future electric sports cars from the French manufacturer.

Although Peugeot has no production plans for the EX1, according to a spokesman, the car shows that the manufacturer can do many things with electric cars and shows how far it can go.

For those who don’t know, the car is powered by a high-output lithium-ion battery pack that can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds while the top speed achieved is 260 km/h or almost 162 mph.

The numbers are impressive if we compare it to the Porsche 918 Spyder Concept for example, which is powered by a 500 hp but also by two electric motors, delivering a total output of 700 hp and pushing the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 320 km/h or 200 mph.

The Peugeot EX1 has a four-wheel drive with a separate electric motor on the front and on the back, just like the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4, and delivers an impressive 340 hp.

EX1 has a lower center of gravity due to its height of just 0.9 m. [via autonews - sub. required]
