On Site with Mitsubishi at the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Mitsubishi released this video of their EV program at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. They fielded two cars, a stock i-Miev and a tube frame i-Miev Evolution that has three motors and almost twice the output. There is footage of the i-Miev Evolution being crashed in practice. The team repaired the car and it came back to place second in the EV category and 8th overall with a 10:30.850. The stock i-Miev was the only showroom stock car to compete and finished with a 15:10.557. For reference, the Toyota P002¬†finished first in the EV class and 6th overall with a 10:15.380 which is less than 30 seconds off the overall record. Monster Tajima’s E-Runner DNF’ed with technical problems after running strong in practice. The P002 now owns the EV record for the Nurburgring Nordschleife and Pikes Peak.
