Celebrating its 200th anniversary, Peugeot will be showing off its EX1 electric roadster concept at Paris Auto Show at the end of the month. The EX1 is a uniquely designed, lightweight two-seat roadster that’s all electric. Peugeot even claims that their concept car “has already broken several world records for acceleration from a standing start.” Peugeot claims the electric roadster is capable of 0-62 mph in 3.55 seconds and a top speed of 161 mph.

The performance comes in with 340-hp through a pair of electric motors to all four wheels. The overall design is what we’re loving though with an edgy and futuristic design that retains some conventional vehicle styling to keep it realistic. The overall sleek profile is really accented by the spectacular photographs Peugeot has released.

This is just another addition to the already long list of vehicles we’ll be spotlighting when we head to the Paris Auto Show later this year. Stay tuned!
