Need a little more space inside your electric microcar? Mitsubishi may have the answer with its i-MiEV Cargo concept, which debuts at the 2009 Tokyo motor show.
In order to provide extra cargo room for commercial clients, the i’s bodywork is radically modified aft of the B-pillars. Instead of a pair of extra doors, the electric vehicle receives slab-sided panels and an upward-sloping roof. Inside, there’s a flat load floor, and roughly 63 cubic feet of storage space.
<;P class=MsoNormal>Mitsubishi claims this is only an “exhibition vehicle” built for the show, but given the number of utility companies testing i MiEVs and the fact that similar vehicles have already graced the Japanese market (Daihatsu’s Midget II comes to mind), we wouldn’t be surprised if the i-Van eventually finds its way into production.
