Rekorden er for den største højdeændring nogensinde opnået af et elektrisk køretøj, rekorden er 4.842.967 meter, hvilket er lidt over 3 miles, flere detaljer nedenfor. Rekordforsøget startede ved Eagle Mine i Michigan og sluttede ved Pikes Peak.
With their precise depth measured and verified by specialist surveyors, the team emerged from the mine just after dawn and began their relentless journey to gain altitude. Their final destination would be the 4,302-metre summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado, home to the world famous Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, which will run for the 100th time this year.
The journey was among the most demanding the car and team had ever experienced. It would take them across six states, and would ascend 4,842.967 metres, or just over three miles, without ever leaving the ground. The oxygen available to them at the start of the journey fell by 40 per cent by the time they reached the top of the mountain. Along the way they encountered sun, rain, snow and ice, fatigue and the ever present threat that the mountain road – and the path to their record – could close due to the weather conditions.
