Elec­tric Peu­geot pow­ers to new records

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

Peu­geot’s elec­tric EX1 has bro­ken a record for elec­tric ve­hi­cles un­der 1000kg set by Ge­org Von Opel in an Opel GT Elec­tric in 1971.

At Montl­héry cir­cuit, the al­l­elec­tric EX1 smashed the ¼- mile, 500m and 1,000m speed records pre­vi­ously set by Ge­org Von Opel in an Opel GT Elec­tric in 1971.

The car then went on to set three new speed records over 8 mile, ½ mile and mile.

Given a 40-year in­ter­val for devel­op­ment, the new records are not dra­mat­i­cally that much bet­ter.

Sam­ple new record: the 1000m max­i­mum speed 79.42mph (old record 72mph).
