Crash With Hyundai Nearly Takes Out Toyota's Pikes Peak Project

Toyota is going up Pike Peak in an electric car again this year, but the whole program nearly ended when a crash with a Hyundai on the way to the hillclimb destroyed their DC quick charger.

This bad luck could have easily ended any smaller team's Pikes Peak effort, but Toyota is not a small team. They're flying in a second DC quick charger from their home base in Germany so their TMG EV P002 (pictured below) has plenty of power for the race to the clouds.


Toyota reported on Facebook that no one was injured in the crash, which happened either on Sunday night or very early Monday morning.
