USA: Mitsubishi i-MiEV Guns For Pikes Peak Electric Record

Some may bemoan the fact that the famous Pikes Peak hillclimb in Colorado is now a paved course, but it’s opened up the hill to more vehicles than ever before.

That now includes electric cars–which is why, this July 8, Mitsubishi is fielding a race-prepared version of its ‘i’ urban electric car.

Though on the outside there seems to be little of the original car left–the track has been widened significantly and the vehicle now looks longer and lower, judging by the renders–the i-MiEV Prototype is still electric under the skin.

Mitsubishi says the vehicle will use the same EV components as the production car. This means that data from the runs up the hill can be analysed and used to help improve the carmaker’s future electric and plug-in vehicles.
