Mitsubishi has announced that it will bring its two new “MiEV Evolution III” to the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to race in the Electric Modified Division.

Mitsubishi first brought its pure electric vehicle race car to the Pikes Peak back in 2012. With high altitudes and variety of weather conditions, Mitsubishi said Pikes Peak is a good test site where it can test its MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) technology.

The MiEV Evolution III is powered by four electric motors that are based on the electric motors of the production Mitsubishi i-MiEV, but modified to produce higher output.  The electric motors in the MiEV Evolution III generate a combined output of 603 horsepower (450 kW), up from last year’s MiEV Evolution II’s 536 horsepower (400 kW). The electric motors draw power from a 50kWh battery.

In addition, the MiEV Evolution III has less weight thanks to a redesigned steel pipe frame with new structural materials, more downforce thanks to a totally “redesigned wind-tunnel-optimized front bodywork/spoiler”, and better handling through a redesigned Super All-Wheel Control system.
