Preview of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) 2024

The legendary hill climb on Pikes Peak, a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the US state of Colorado, will take place on Sunday, June 2022, 22.

In 2014, the Stromer took second and third place. In 2015, the electric car with the bulky vehicle designation “e0 PP03 Elektroauto” from the Latvian manufacturer “Drive e-0” won the open vehicle class for the first time.
