Previewed as concept carat the 2003 Frankfurt Auto Show, then launched in Japan in January 2006, recipient of many an award and well received by media and customers alike, the innovative A-Segment “i” has been selected as the platform for MMC’s next generation electric vehicle project: the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, whose Euro-spec. version (left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive is officially unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show).

Mitsubishi i-MiEV uses a high-efficiency compact and lightweight permanent magnet synchronous electric motor specially developed for the vehicle.This unit generates maximum torque from low engine speeds (180 Nm – 0 to 2,000 rpm) to deliver powerful response (66.6ps/49 kW) and a seamless driving experience.

“MiEV OS” gathers data and information from all the major EV components to provide integrated management of the car’s performance. This advanced management system constantly monitors battery status and the energy recovered from the regenerative brakes while regulating output to ensure smooth and powerful acceleration from a full stop. As a result the system optimizes and minimizes energy consumption to deliver the most appropriate actual on-road performance.

Mitsubishi Motors plans to set the price (car + traction batteries) of the European-spec i-MiEV to around €33,000 – €35,000 (or equivalent) so that the final cost to the customer after government incentives (where applicable) remains under €30,000 (or equivalent) in a majority of the countries it is to be sold in.
