Mission Mitsubishi Announces i-MiEV to Partake in Pikes Peak Hill Climb
SAN ANTONIO, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Mission Mitsubishi, a Mitsubishi dealer in San Antonio, is excited to announce that Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV Prototype will be taking on the historic Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, which will take place in Colorado on July 8, 2012.
For those unfamiliar with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb it is an annual automotive/motorcycle hill climb to the highest summit of Pikes Peak, in Colorado, which stands at 12,900 feet. This event dates all the way back to 1916 and has been taking place ever since.
The i-MiEV Prototype set to take on Pikes Peak will feature the same EV components that the current production i-MiEV uses. By participating in this event, MMC will gain some critical data from their vehicle as they can test the durability of it in a tough, more strenuous environment.
Although the i-MiEV is set to make an appearance and will in fact race, it’s obvious that they plan to use the rugged terrain that is Pikes Peak as a stepping-stone for added durability and reliability.
Mission Mitsubishi is a San Antonio Mitsubishi dealer that sells new Mitsubishi vehicles as well as several used cars in San Antonio. If it’s car service you’re after, Mission Mitsubishi also has a full-service, service center that will be able to assist you with any of your maintenance needs.
