What we have learned so far

ProEV has decisively answered the question of whether an electric vehicle can beat a gasoline powered car.

In 2005, ProEV's Kokam powered Electric Imp was undefeated on the way to winning the Florida Region SCCA Solo Championship in the D Modified class.

In 2007 after a series of pole positions and second places, the Electric Imp became the first electric car in over 100 years to defeat gasoline cars in sanctioned closed circuit road racing competition.

It took us 8 races to realise this goal.

Having achieved this historic accomplishment, we decided to step back from competition; review lessons learned and apply that knowledge in a total rebuild of the Electric Imp.
