2007 Mitsubishi i MiEV SPORT Concept

– Variant of the previous i Miev electric-car concept
– 2+2 seater
– Claimed 124-mile driving range
– In-wheel electric motors for the front wheels, one motor for the two rear wheels
– Batteries supplemented by a photovoltaic generator on the roof, regenerative brakes, and a power-generating fan inside the grille

Mitsubishi says: “The car brings a new closeness between people and cars; allowing them to become more a part of daily life.”

We say: Tiny electric cars are a fixture of the Tokyo show. The i MiEV SPORT at least innovates with is supplemental power generators. We also like its slope-backed shape more than that of its plain-looking four-door predecessor.
