Mitsubishi Electric Car Bigger, Cheaper in America
When Mitsubishi launches its electric car, the i-Miev, in the U.S. next fall, it will be cheaper and bigger than the Japanese version.
According to preview specs, the biggest difference from its kiev class Japanese counterpart is that it will be, well, bigger. The body has been elongated by 11.2 inches, widened by 4.3 inches and stands 0.2 inches taller. Front and rear tracks are 4.3 inches wider to meet U.S. safety standards. The U.S. version also adds front and rear bumpers, airbags to detect passengers and control deployment force, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Active Stability Control (ASC).
According to a press release, the larger, sturdier body structure will "secure plenty of space for four adults and better meet the expectations of U.S. consumers."
