The concept was created as a celebration of the Marque’s 200th anniversary. The EX1’s architecture reminds previous charismatic concept cars from Peugeot such as the Asphalte and 20Cup. Shaped like a “water droplet”, with a rear section built around two closely set rear wheels, the EX1 is far from being a “classic” roadster. A particular feature of this concept is the reverse-opening door that gives access to the two sports bucket seats. The EX1 uses two electric motors, one on each axle, each with a peak output of 125 kW (250 kW/340 bhp in total), and an immediately available constant maximum torque of 240 Nm at the front and rear. Aside from optimizing weight distribution, this setup also allows for four wheel drive.
