Mitsubishi has revealed plans to race the MiEV Evolution II electric prototype at 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The vehicle is 4870mm long, 1900mm wide and 1390mm tall and has a specially-developed pipe-frame chassis and a carbon cowl. It comes with four electric motors (two front + two rear) which together provide a maximum output of 400 kW (4 x 100 kW), while the battery has a capacity of 50 kWh and is mounted under the floor to allow a lower center of gravity.

Those four electric motors work together with Mitsubishi's own Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) and the Active Yaw Control (AYC) which optimally controls the yaw moment to generate the best cornering capabilities. Active Stability Control (ASC) is also on board to improve stability by controlling brake force automatically to one or more wheels.

Mitsubishi will filed two MiEV Evolution II electric prototypes which will be driven by two-time Dakar Rally overall champion Hiroshi Masuoka and six-time Pikes Peak motorcycle champion Greg Tracy.
