Mitsubishi is developing their very own EV in form of a small sportscar which will debut at this year’s Geneva Autoshow in March. Mitsu says their idea of EV is different than other mainstream manufacturers because they are going to make a proper sportscar with zero emission. Fine, but maybe they still have not heard of Tesla!
Blending its sporting heritage with leading expertise in the development of the EV, Mitsubishi Motors is providing a clear new look on the world, in more ways than one. The clear removable top of the i MiEV SPORT AIR Concept will be premiered at the forthcoming 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
Taking a step beyond being merely ‘green’, this all-electric zero CO2 emission sports concept builds upon the fundamentals of the EV by marrying:
- the powerful acceleration and high torque inherent to electric motors,
- the safe driving dynamics that stem from i MiEV’s lithium-ion battery pack located within its long wheelbase and the low centre of gravity.
The i MiEV SPORT AIR is a new-age “pocket rocket” and signals the direction in which the Mitsubishi sports EV may take in the future.
