Rhys Millen’s eO PP03 megawatt supercar made electric-car history by logging the overall title at the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday.
Rhys Millen took the Drive eO PP03 electric car to an overall title with a new record time for battery-powered cars of 9:07.222. That’s still nearly a minute off the all-time PPIHC record set by rally legend Sebastien Loeb in 2013, but marked a significant milestone for electric technology.
Piles Peak veteran Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima, also driving the Tajima Rimac E-Runner Concept_One electric car, finished second overall with a time of 9m32.401s, to capture second place.
