2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed will see the world’s coolest electric car, Peugeot EX1, running up the hill.
Don’t let the fact that the EX1 is an electric car put you down. This EV is not built for saving the planet, it’s built for fun! The car’s powered by by two electric motors driving each axle with a combined power output of 340bhp, with torque at the wheels of 1680Nm which enables impressive acceleration with a capability of 0-62mph in just 3.49 seconds. It’s already set many world speed records for electric vehicles. It’s even been featured in Top Gear last year.
Peugeot’s stand also includes other exciting models. Main highlights include UK debut of petrol-hybrid HR1 – a Compact MPV concept, the new 308 CC (Coupé Cabriolet), the popular and stylish RCZ Sports Coupé, in the form of the new Asphalt LE of which only 75 are available in the UK, the 508, the 3008 HYbrid4, and competition cars including 908 Endurance Race car, and Guy Wilks’ Peugeot 207 S2000 IRC Rally Car.
On Thursday, Peugeot is running a number RCZ Sports Coupés and new 508s in both Saloon and SW body style guises in the 2nd Goodwood Moving Motor Show.Peugeot EX1 At Goodwood Festival of Speed,
