Aerodynamically Optimized with Exa PowerFLOW, Mitsubishi Motors' Electric Racecar Wins Pikes Peak

Exa® Japan Inc., a subsidiary of Exa Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a simulation solutions provider for product engineering, announced that Exa PowerFLOW® was chosen for the aerodynamic development of Mitsubishi Motor Corporation's electric racecar, the MiEV Evolution III. Mitsubishi's new racecar won its premiere motorsports event at the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, held in Colorado, USA. Using PowerFLOW, Mitsubishi was able to achieve superior downforce to help its racecar to a record-breaking performance in the electric modified class — the only new world record, in any event, at Pikes Peak this year.
