Mitsubishi to race two MiEV Evolution II all-electric cars at Pikes Peak

Mitsubishi has announced that two all-new MiEV Evolution II all-electric race cars will take on legendary Pikes Peak Hill Climb end of next month.

Last year the i-MiEV Evolution all-electric prototype finished second in the Electric Division and this year with the updated model Mitsubishi aims for overall first place.

The MiEV Evolution II uses parts used in production vehicles combined with a high-capacity battery and high-output motors both specially designed by MMC’s suppliers.

Four electric motors (two front and two rear) have a maximum output of 536 hp / 400 kW (4 x 100 kW), while the 50 kWh battery is mounted under the floor for lower centre of gravity.

One of the MiEV Evolution II electric prototypes will be driven by two-time Dakar Rally overall champion Hiroshi Masuoka and the second one by six-time Pikes Peak motorcycle champion Greg Tracy.
