Mitsubishi i-MiEV European Price and Specs

Fri, 09/24/2010 - 09:11

The new Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric vehicle is now available to order in UK, but other European countries must wait a bit longer.

At the upcoming Paris Motor Show, Mitsubishi beings along the European version of this electric urban commuter which is a bit different than the one currently on the roads in Japan.

The pricing also varied depending on different countries and incentives, but it will be around 33,000 to 35,000 euros, which is very high for such a thing. Mitsu says that it might be possible to get one under 30K if you are fully eligible for the incentives, but still it’s very hard to justify that price for a car that can only be used in cities and will run out of charge every 40 miles or so.

Compared with the Japanese market version, the European-spec i-MiEV includes specific features such as:  New design to the front and rear bumpers to meet EU regulations,  Rearranged centre stack in the instrument panel,  Improved interior comfort. Furthermore, safety – both active & passive – has been improved with the addition of Active Stability Control (ASC) as well as side and curtain airbags, all standard equipment.
