After the return of TMG - the winners of last year - with the TMG EV P002 DriveEO’s surprise participation with the eO PP01, Mitsubishi just announced its return to achieve a better score that the second place they had achieved the last year in the electric category.
Indeed, last year, Mitsubishi raced an electric car for the first time in the legendary race to the cloud and despite the experience gained with the development of its compact electric-car, nothing replaces the race!
Therefore this year they upgraded the car that looses the roof looking less i-Miev and more open-wheeler. The i-MiEV Evolution II remains a 4WD but it now has four electric motors (3 before) for a peak power going from 240kW to 400kW (536hp) with a battery whose capacity is up by 40% at 50kWh, that should make a difference!
Two pilots, Hiroshi Masuoka and Greg Tracy will be at the starting line.
In the participants from last year, only Tajima has not revealed yet its prototype for this year...
