It’s electric engine is smooth and quiet, even while accelerating, and produces no vibrations at all when stopped. Meanwhile, the fixed gear ratio eliminates shift shock for seamless acceleration. All you and your passengers will feel is relieved. The lightweight permanent magnet synchronous motor combines high efficiency with surprisingly strong and linear acceleration for easy passing power, while rear wheel drive increases handling performance.
Equipped with a regular connection for a full charge in 8 hours from electrical outlets and a quick-charging connection for an 80% full charge in 30 minutes at quick-charge stations, powering up the i-MiEV at home or around town is as simple as plugging in.
A total of six SRS airbags help protect the driver and passengers in the event of a collision.
Mitsubishi’s exclusive RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction absorbs impact while providing a rigid occupant cell during a collision.
The i-MiEV’s batteries are placed in a waterproof batterypack that is located inside the body frame and enclosed in a well-crib frame to protect against impact damage from any direction.
With MiEV Remote System, the remote climate control can be pre-activated to prepare a comfortable interior environment while saving electricity for the drive.
