Toyota says the PV002 has more reliable and more powerful

*Update: Toyota has added a second video that shows the PV002 testing at Paul Ricard. You can view it below the Nürburgring video below. It seems quieter than before, but that could just be the microphone placement inside the car.

chassis. Toyota says that the PV002 is more powerful and more durable than its predecessor. The PV002 produces 350kW (470hp) and 900Nm of torque with gearing that will give it a 240km/h top speed at Pikes Peak. It is powered by an electric motor located in both rear wheels with two Toyota Motorsports-built inverters. It uses a cutting edge lithium ceramic battery with 42kWh of charge.

Toyota tested the PV002 at Paul Ricard to ensure its reliability and power for Pikes Peak. 

“Pikes Peak is a great showcase for TMG’s electric powertrain technology. We already proved at the Nürburgring that TMG is leading the way in developing such powertrains for motorsport and this is another sign of our commitment to this technology. TMG wants to be increasingly involved in electric motorsport and we believe our powertrain technology is an industry-leading combination of performance, durability and packaging," said Ludwig Zeller, General Manager Electric & Electronics at Toyota.

The Pikes Peak Hill Climb starts at 2,800m and goes to 4,300m that runs 12.42 miles. 

Below you can see a video of the PV001 record-setting lap the the Nürburgring last year. 

Here is the PV002 testing at Paul Ricard.
