The Japanese automaker company just released the first photos of its two major contenders to win the legendary Pikes Peak.Yes, you read that right the number of vehicles, it finally will be two electric cars that Mitsubishi put on the line.
The biggest surprise may be the idea of possessing a Mitsubishi i-MIEV, accompanied by a second i-MIEV-looking and practice serial numbers.
Mitsubishi i-MiEV Evolution for Pikes Peak 2012
The appearance of the more radical variant we met with the official announcement by Mitsubishi to compete in the Pikes Peak using an i-MIEV, what strikes us below is ultimately they’re two very different options from an exceptionally theoretical base.
A different shock within this announcement is the absence of any point out Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima , one of the biggest assets that had the project. Ultimately the riders will be chosen by Mitsubishi Hiroshi Masuoka, twice winner from the Dakar rally, and Beccy Gordon , well-known pilot off-road categories in the U.S.
Mitsubishi i-MiEV Features
The target of Mitsubishi beyond the sample itself company capacity is unknown, because focus for the numbers showing that shuffled its competitors, the variations can become abysmal. The secret according to quite a few can hide under the pores and skin on the i-MIEV most radical, electric-drive status in communion with extreme weight loss in its chassis and body may be the key to discuss a possible candidate.
Mitsubishi i-MiEV more discreet differ just the technical element, saving solutions inexorable for the reason that roll-bar and a slight aerodynamic improvement. Its electric motor will a power of 67 hp and keep your battery and propulsion system installed when it was a output model. Beccy Gordon will be responsible for bringing this i-MiEV finish, if autonomy lets it, a facet which is however not allowing go the Japanese.
But we got the real interest in Mitsubishi’s bid, a i-MiEV to light except your name and details, bears no resemblance to the model presented by the company. In this case we speak of a vehicle installed propulsion system triple, 3 electric motors of 109 hp . Two of them will drive the rear axle, while the third will do the front axle. A combined power to exceed 325 hp with a constant push from the first moment . At the wheel of this electric sports car will be sitting Masuoka, trying to break records for home as it did to win the Dakar in 2002 and 2003.
