Η Peugeot έπιασε δουλειά με το πρωτότυπο της EX1 Concept μπροστά σε ένα κοινό 200 προσκεκλημένων στην Κινέζικη πόλη της Chengdu για να κάνει κάποια ρεκόρ που αφορούν αποκλειστικά ηλεκτρικά οχήματα. Το EX1 οδηγήθηκε από τον Γάλλο Nicolas Vanier και τον Κινέζο blogger (!!!) Han Han σε ένα στρατιωτικό αεροδρόμιο και έθεσε τα εξής ρεκόρ.

  • 0-100 χλμ/ώρα σε 3.49 δευτερόλεπτα.
  • Διαμήκης επιτάχυνση ενός G για πάνω από 39 μέτρα από τον Vanier.
  • 1/8 του μιλίου (201 μέτρα) από στάση σε 7.0862 δευτερόλεπτα.
  • 1/4 του μιλίου (402 μέτρα) σε 12.6754 δευτερόλεπτα από τον Han Han.

Τα ρεκόρ φυσικά είναι ανεπίσημα και συμβολικά αλλά έγιναν για να δείξουν τι μπορεί να κάνει ένα αποκλειστικά ηλεκτρικό όχημα. Για την ιστορία, το EX1 Concept κινείται από δύο ηλεκτροκινητήρες (έναν σε κάθε άξονα) με συνολική απόδοση 250 kW (340 ίππων) με 48 κιλά ροπής.

Peugeot moves up a gear in China with the EX1 concept which is breaking new records in the Marque’s bicentenary year.

The 100% electric Peugeot EX1 concept car, which already set several records in Montlhéry in September, has continued its record-breaking streak in the Chinese city of Chengdu, in front of 200 representatives of the Chinese and Western media.

Records set by Nicolas Vanier, the French explorer, and Han Han, the well-known Chinese blogger

The EX1 matched or surpassed 5 records in the series of runs made at the Chengdu military airport in the province of Sichuan. These various records were set by 2 drivers symbolising Franco-Chinese friendship:

Han Han, driver, writer and China’s most popular blogger who has a massive fan base among the country’s urban youth and Nicolas Vanier, French explorer, film-maker and driver who has a fascination for the Poles and is an untiring defender of the environment.

Han Han pulverised the official records initially set in Montlhéry for 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile with times of 7:08:62 and 12:67:54 respectively.

These records have been certified and will be approved by the Chinese Auto Sports Federation which validated the quality and accuracy of measurements made.

Nicolas Vanier achieved unofficial records for 0 to 100 km/h, in 3.49 seconds, and for the 400 m. He also achieved the symbolic longitudinal acceleration of 1G, over 39 m.

This series of performances represents a world 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 propulsion methods for the car.

6 image-enhancing events for Peugeot aimed at boosting development in China

These records achieved in Chengdu represent the 6th event already organised by Peugeot in China in 2010, the Marque’s bicentenary year.

In January 2010, the Chinese 408 was put on static display in Beijing.

In April 2010, the Marque unveiled its new global image in China, on the sidelines of the Beijing Motor Show, when it initiated the market launch of the 408 on the 8th day of the 4th month of the year of the tiger.

In July 2010, Peugeot put on a monographic exhibition of the Marque’s 200-year history in the French Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo.

On 24 October, Peugeot organised in YSHU8, the emblematic site for Franco-Chinese relations, the static display of the EX1, as well as total immersion in the Peugeot universe. Nor should we overlook the recent victory of the 908 HDi FAP in the 1,000 km of Zhuhai, in southern China, enabling Peugeot to pick up the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup ahead of a prestigious German rival.

China: a strategic market for Peugeot

Peugeot has lofty ambitions for China, the world’s biggest car market, where it has set itself the goal of doubling its market share by boosting vehicle sales to 500,000 units by 2015.

To achieve these objectives, the Marque has defined a highly ambitious product plan with the launch each year of at least one product manufactured in China over the coming years.
