Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution II Will Race to the Clouds

Oct 11, 2013

The first race up Pikes Peak was in 1916, when getting up any incline could prove challenging, but the race has spawned innovation and created motorsports legends throughout the decades. Enjoying its 91st running in 2013, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is the second-oldest American race after the Indy 500. Competitors climb to a total elevation of 14,110 feet, scaling 4,720 feet in the heat of battle. Mitsubishi entered Pikes Peak competition for the first time last year with the i-MiEV Evolution all- electric prototype, finishing Second in the Electric Vehicle division. Participation in the event brought a wealth of data in areas such as vehicle speed and acceleration, lithium-ion drive battery consumption, electric motor temperature, and other key information that will play an important role in future Mitsubishi electric vehicle development.

Like last year’s i-MiEV Evolution, the MiEV Evolution II combines parts used in production vehicles with a high-capacity battery and high-output motors specially designed by Mitsubishi’s suppliers. Based on experience gained from last year’s race, Mitsubishi has added a high-tech Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel-drive system to the innovative four-motor (two-front/two-rear) drivetrain for increased handling and control in the MiEV Evolution II.
