Mitsubishi Motors Returns to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to Race a Pair of MiEV Evolution II Electric-Powered Race Cars in Continuing Commitment to EV Development.

Two-time Dakar Rally overall champion Hiroshi Masuoka returns for the 2013 Pikes Peak effort, partnered this year with six-time Pikes Peak overall motorcycle champion Greg Tracy.

The Mitsubishi Motors Racing Team conducted vehicle testing of the all-new MiEV Evolution II at Pikes Peak on June 15-16 in preparation for this year's Race to the Clouds and the 100 percent electric-powered racing prototype performed flawlessly.

The MiEV Evolution II features a unique four-motor drivetrain (two front/two rear) based on a modified high-output version of the production Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric vehicle motor, a tube-frame chassis, Mitsubishi Motors' highly-advanced Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive technology, aerodynamically-enhanced carbon-fiber bodywork and state-of-the-art high-capacity lithium-ion batteries by Lithium Energy Japan (LEJ).

Last year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb marked Mitsubishi Motors' debut in the Electric Vehicle Division with the i-MiEV Evolution racing prototype which, at the hands of driver Hiroshi Masuoka, resulted in an excellent second place finish in the EV class.
