Pikes Peak 2012, HCE Lightning XP12, number three on the podium!


After the TMG EV P002 and the i-MiEV Evolution, respectively on the first and second place of the electric vehicles class at Pikes Peak, here is the third electric car to climb on the podium.


With a budget far different from those of TMG and Mitsubishi, an independent company HCE Lightning, initially specialized in electric two-wheelers and especially race motorcycles -winners of the TTXGP USA @ Laguna Seca- developed a prototype that managed to slip in the top three.

Driven by Elias Anderson, the prototype crossed the finish line in 11:00.857 at 45 seconds of the first and the 30 from the second! For now the specs of the car is unknown.

About the full results of the class EVWest with Michael Bream at 11:58.929 rank fourth, followed by Ikuo Hanawa on the Yokohama HER-02 (beating his personal record) at 11:58.974, and finally the series i-MiEV we already presented yesterday.
