EV West Enters Electric BMW M3 In Pikes Peak Hillclimb

Electric Vehicle West (EV West) is an electric vehicle conversion shop in San Diego which has built a drag car or three.  I first met them at the 2011 REFUEL race, where they had a large contingent of people wearing EV West branded t-shirts.

The company just announced they had entered the 2012 Pikes Peak Hill Climb.  I suppose we won’t be seeing them at REFUEL, because that event is one week before and in a wholly different direction.

They released the following youtube teaser video, saying: This is the 2012 Pikes Peak entry for EV West. 1995 BMW M3 (currently) running on a Net-Gain HV11 and a Evnetics Shiva. For more information please visit evwest.com or visit us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ElectricVehicleWest

They posted this picture of custom designed brush holders that will be used in the car.
