Toyota Plug In Pumped for Pikes Peak Race

Toyota has announced that it too will be entering an experimental electric vehicle, the TMG EV P002, into this year’s Pikes Peak hill climb competition.

The poorly-named TMG will feature an improved and updated take on the motor-battery combination and Radical racing chassis that set a lapping record in Nürburgring last year by completing the run in a mere seven minutes and 47 seconds. The Japanese automaker claims that the new combo is able to churn out 469 horsepower and reach 149 miles per hour. There was no word on why it stopped just one mile short of 150.
