EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under 20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400 Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how it drives.

Electric Factory Five 818 Project - Track Shakedown - EV West / 33 Machine
In this introduction video of the Electric 818 car by EV West and 33 Machine, we take it out to Adams Motorsport Park for an initial shakedown. The car is powered by a HPEVS AC2-35 dual AC motor setup running at 144kW. The car has 16kWh of capacity, and can drive about 60-70 miles on it's lightweight lithium ion battery pack. Recharging is done through an onboard 5000kW charger, and is public charge station compatible, making this street legal electric rocket ship a great way to run around town, and still have track-worthy performance. The current weight of the car is 1700 pounds, but it still needs just under 250 pounds of bodywork added to the car giving an estimated final weight of 1950 pounds.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors.

EV West Pikes Peak Official Run 2012 - Electric BMW M3 - First Converted Car to Race
Here's our official timed run for the 2012 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. We had an issue with a couple of Go Pro cameras due to the delays caused by Monster Tajima's fire, and Dallenbach's crash, so unfortunately, we don't have in-car footage. The EV West M3 holds the mountain record with an 11:58.929 for a street converted car. Good enough for 4th in electric, and beating out last year's world record (later to be beaten by Toyota MG).

WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR
SUBSCRIBE! Learn about EV technology: http://www.electric-vehiclenews.com/ Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie. This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less than 7%. Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms. EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered car.
