The Chinese city of Chengdu was the location where the car broke its own previous records set in Montlhery, France.
Driven by a Chinese blogger, Han Han, the EX1 smashed the previous 1/8-mile and quarter-mile records set in September, with times of 7.08.62sec and 12.67.54sec seconds respectively.
Both the record times have been certified and will be approved by the Chinese Auto Sports Federation, which validates the quality and accuracy of the measurements.
The EX1’s previous record-breaking driver, Nicolas Vanier, was also in China and achieved another unofficial record for 0-to-100km/h in 3.49sec. He also demonstrated the ability of the EX1 by recording longitudinal acceleration of 1G over a total sprint of 39 meters. This series of records represents a benchmark in terms of acceleration for an electric vehicle and testifies to the advanced, high-tech know-how of Peugeot when it comes to alternative vehicle propulsion.
