Toyota amps up electric-car for Pikes Peak

Toyota up electric-car output for Pikes

Toyota is aiming to improve on years record-breaking run when its electric race car tackles months Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

Toyota GmbH (TMG) engineers generated greater performance the EV P002 race car which year smashed the electric-car record by more than two

The latest high-tech racer be driven this year by New Rod Millen, who has set multiple records at Peak and has competed regularly in machinery.

TMGs electric vehicle centre in Germany used gained from last class-winning run to boost combined power from the cars two flux motors by more 14 per cent to 400kW.

Peak from the advanced electric has been amped-up by one-third to a 1,200Nm, delivered through a transmission.

Maximum motor has been uprated by 20 per cent to

The powertrains operating parameters been tuned to better the gruelling challenge of the unique Pikes Peak track, rises more than metres and includes 156 turns.

The latest car is on its way to Salisbury, North where Toyota Racing will sharpen the aerodynamics of the chassis before conducting tests.

TMG support crew further optimise the powertrain the practice week leading up to day, June 30.

Last the TMG EV P002 completed the climb in an record of 10mins, 15.38secs, an impressive sixth place in the classification.

Unlike conventional engines, the fully electric maintains full power in the thin mountain air.

The Peak climb, in Colorado USA, begins at an altitude of metres and finishes at 4,300 all of which is now fully paved.

This years hill occurs just one week TMGs Toyota Racing takes on the Le Mans 24 Hours a hybrid prototype.

The TMG EV P002 is the benchmark for electric race worldwide, having demonstrated its and versatility by setting new standards at two of the venues in motorsport.

TMG first a motorsport-tuned electric powertrain in to set the fastest time for electric at the 20.8km N rburgring Nordschleife in

After last years Peak triumph, the TMG EV P002 the N rburgring lap record by 25 seconds to a 7mins, 22.329secs.

TMG uses pioneering off-board charging technology, including a Electric EVlink DC Charger, to the TMG EV P002 from the mountainside, there is no reliable connection to the grid.

Mounted in the rear of a HiAce, the TMG DC Quick Charger a 42kWh lithium-ion battery, can be charged directly from the AC grid.

After an overnight the TMG DC Quick Charger is able to deliver high levels of to a battery-based electric car without installation or infrastructure.

With varying current and output, the TMG DC Quick Charger an independent source of power for recharging in any location, making it the solution for electric motorsport.

TMG coordinator strategic EV development Brasse said the innovative system could be adapted for types of race and passenger

The potential for off-board battery-to-battery technology is great, particularly in the of motorsport where infrastructure will increasingly become a of frustration for electric motorsport, Ms said.

Since 2007, TMG has a pioneering centre of development for electric vehicle technology and for powertrain and infrastructure integration in
