Peugeot EX1 Electric Roadster

Written by tonks on September 22, 2010

Motor shows are held all around the world and used as a platform to show off new designs that have yet to be revealed. It gives every automaker the opportunity to see just how much the consumers love or hate the idea. We have seen some unusual concepts in the past – but Peugeot is taking it one step further by putting a new spin on EX1.

The Peugeot EX1 was designed to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the marque. It is an all electric two seat roadster equipped with a pair of electric motors that gives it 340 horsepower. Already the automaker is claiming that it “has already broken several world records for acceleration from a standing start.”

The exterior design is unique and the first thing that will catch our eyes. Engineers were trying to pull off a type of “exoskeleton” appearance to the whole thing and they managed to pull it off. It helps to show just how lightweight the entire thing is. The bodies’ design clearly uses the new visual aspect that was first seen on the SR1 concept.

Underneath the hood lies an electric motor that is quiet and built with some of the most advanced acceleration technology. These engines assist in making the car easier to drive and there is no reason to use a gearbox. The motors are placed on each axle and have a peak output of 125 kW. This concept car was designed to break a few records and we look forward to seeing it in action!

It honestly looks more like the Bat Mobile. It’s pretty slick, however I seriously doubt a car like that would ever see production.

The overall sleek profile is really accented by the spectacular photographs Peugeot has released…

I quess for an electric car this one looks really nice. In stead of calling it a car you could call it a motorcycle.

The EX1 concept car is based on an architecture shaped and it has an amazing look. The shape of this vehicle reminds me of my favorite hybrid XR-3.
