Feature Flick: Peugeot’s Electric Concept Tackles the Nurburgring

You’ve already heard that Peugeot’s wild electric EX1 concept car managed to set a new EV lap record at the famed Nürburgring -- but, at long last, the automaker has finally rolled out footage of its electrified accomplishment.

To jog your memory, the EX1 -- which was first unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show -- looped the Nürburgring last week in 9 minutes and one seconds, posting an average speed of 86 mph. That bested the previous EV lap record -- set by a modified Mini E -- by almost 50 seconds.

Having stunned showgoers and smashed lap records, is production -- even in limited volumes -- the next frontier for the EX1? Peugeot isn’t talking, but it’d be neat to have yet another electrified sports car on the market.
