Peugeot EX1 EV Concept Sets EV Record at Nurburgring

Not only is thing car green and battery powered, it's fast too. The car already has a number of speed records to its name and it has now crushed the EV record at the hallowed Nurburgring race circuit. This is the circuit where many of Europe's top automakers come to test their car's mettle in a race around the long, fast, and grueling track.

The EX1 made a complete lap around the track in 9:01.338. To put a little context on that time, that is a full 50 seconds faster than the previous EV record lap. The EX1 is a four-wheel drive vehicle and it averaged 85mph during its run. The EV has a total of 340hp.

My Take: This is one seriously bad ass EV and it proves that EV designers don’t have to make their cars look like a Prius.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
