This Electric E36 Makes 850 lb/ft of Torque at the Wheels! - TUNED

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.

That's the strangest thing I've seen in a while. I appreciate one of his parting comments about placing the tech into a racing environment to see it evolve.

Truth be told, I wonder where cars would be today if the electric car movement had focused on performance rather than the environment. At some point, those two ideas converge... i guess it just a question of how many years of sucky electric cars do we have to watch putter around...
