29/06/2015

For several years, electric vehicles stand out in car races such as the Pikes Peak Hill Climb where they perform better with the altitude than combustion vehicles...



Last year's Pikes Peak race had been dominated by Sebastien Loeb and the record sprayed with his Peugeot 208 - breaking the record of the event by more than a minute with 8: 13,878 !!

This year, Loeb does not recur, and Rhys Millen (driver and specialist of the PPHIC) is still unable to match the time of the French ... But for the first time, he puts his electric car on the overall podium with 9: 07.22!

The vehicle - sponsored by Hankook - is the eO Drive PP03, marking the third appearance of the small Latvian manufacturer at the event, and a first victory with this car developing 1020kW and 2160Nm of torque in peak for 1200kg!!


Despite the support of Rimac Automobili, the pioneer of the race with an electric vehicle, Tajima and the "Rimac" e-Runner are nearly 30 seconds behind at 9: 32,401 but nevertheless they rank second  on the overall podium !!
