Mitsubishi Motors Prototype i MiEV Concept at 2009 Geneva ShowBy Cuong Huynh • Feb 12th, 2009 • Category: Clean Car Talk Posts
According to a Mitsubishi Motors press release, February 12, 2009,
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is to give the Prototype i MiEV concept model its global debut at the 79th Geneva International Motor Show which runs from March 3 through March 15 at the Geneva Palexpo exhibition and conference complex (opening to the general public on March 5).With feasibility testing now underway in Europe, the possibility for Mitsubishi Motors’ i MiEV electric car to be launched in Europe draws tantalizingly close.

While no final decision has been made yet as to whether or when the car will be launched, Mitsubishi will continue to gauge reactions through a further exercise: the Prototype i MiEV show car.
To be unveiled at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show next to the i MiEV SPORT AIR concept, this latest iteration introduces left-hand-drive to the equation and conceptualizes — amongst other items — the wide(er) tracks and long(er) overhangs of a potential European specification i MiEV.
As a reminder, i MiEV represents the pinnacle of Mitsubishi Motors’ green technologies. Currently involved in testing and promotional activities in Japan, New Zealand, the United States and Europe, the car will be launched in Japan during the summer of 2009.
MiEV stands for Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle. It looks like Mitsubishi is on its way to bring out to market one of the first electric vehicles. Enjoy the videos below.
