Celebrating Peugeot's 200th anniversary, the all-electric EX1 draws on Peugeot's new styling language - featured most recently in the new 508 and the stylish SR1 concept - executed for the EX1 in a design that Peugeot describes as a 'water droplet exoskeleton'.
Power for the EX1 is provided by two electric motors - one at each axle - producing a combined output of 250kW and 250Nm of instantly-available torque, with energy coming from a lithium ion battery pack.
No performance figures for the EX1 have been offered, although Peugeot claims it has already "broken several world records for acceleration from a standing start." (An odd claim to make without offering numbers to back it up...)
Access to the EX1's interior is made by climbing in through reverse-opening doors, and the two seats are fitted to the doors rather than to the monocoque frame of the car itself.
Suspension is managed by a drop-link double wishbone system at the front, while a motorbike-like swingarm manages suspension at the rear, linked to a central shock absorber.
While we wait for details of its claimed achievements, Peugeot says it aims to break even more world records with the EX1 this year.
