Toyota Motorsport electric race car (TMG EV P002) testing ahead of 2012 Pikes Peak hillclimb


This Toyota-made video shows the new evolution of the TMG EV P001 car that smashed the electric lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 2011. Toyota Motorsport is entering the car, now known as the TMG EV P002, in the 2012 Pikes Peak International hill climb event.

From Toyota:

“Based on a Radical chassis, the TMG EV P002 has a predicted top speed of 240km/h in Pikes Peak configuration, with combined maximum power of 350kW from its two axial flux motors.

“The hillclimb, which begins at an altitude of 2,800m and reaches the summit of 4,300m, is an ideal environment to showcase the strengths of an electric powertrain. TMG’s high-performance electric powertrain maintains full power despite the thin atmosphere at high altitude while delivering an impressive 900Nm of torque through its single-speed gearing.

“The TMG EV P002 underwent a successful three-day testing session at the Paul Ricard circuit in southern France in May to verify car and powertrain performance.”
