Peugeot EX1 electrifies the Nürburgring [video]

As an update to the original story, Peugeot has released a video showing the EX1 concept setting a new electric vehicle lap record at the Nürburgring.

Piloted by Stéphane Caillet, the one-off prototype completed the 20.8 km (12 mile) Nordschleife in 9 minutes and 1.3 seconds at an average speed of 138.3 km/h (85.9 mph).

As you may recall, the EX1 concept is powered by two electric motors that produce a combined output of 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. Detailed performance specifications haven't been announced, but the car previously set an unofficial EV acceleration record of 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds.
