The Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III on track tests

In Japan at the invitation of Mitsubishi Motors, we witness the progress they have made with the MiEV Evolution racecar.

The MiEV had first entered competition at the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) and the car’s latest version, the MiEV Evolution III, recently placed 2nd and 3rd at this year’s racing event. Their MiEV initiative is meant to promote Mitsubishi’s consumer electric car, the i-MiEV, and to test, improve and prove their EV technology at the PPIHC which is an important venue for experimental motor sports.

On hand to demonstrate the MiEV Evolution III was Hiroshi Masuoka who had won the Dakar Rally in back-to-back victories in 2002 and 2003.
