Peugeot EX1 - Nurburgring Nordschleife Record Time
Electric vehicle with a record lap around Nurburgring Nordschleife race track?!
Yes, Peugeot EX1 with Stéphane Caillet, driver and tuner-technician from the Company's Research & Development Centre, behind the steering wheel. The vehicle made a record lap for electric vehicles around the 20.832 kilometres (12.944 miles) race track.
