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.
