Peugeot EX1 Concept sets new electric car record at Nürburgring

Electric ‘supercars’ are becoming more popular though they may never replace the petrol burning beasts we see today. But here’s an example of what these latest technology electric vehicles are capable of. The Peugeot EX1 Concept has set a new record for an electric car on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

Driver Stéphane Caillet took just 9 minutes and 1.338 seconds to lap the electric racer around the 20.8 km (12 mile) Nordschleife track. The car clocked an average speed of 138,324 km/h (85.9 mph) on the run.
The topless fully functional concept car beats the previous record for an electric vehicle on the Nordschleife track by over 50 seconds. Unfortunately we don’t have a video yet!
