Aims to do to maintain the cleanliness and the environment, Mitsubishi Motors (MMC) has given much attention to the development of electric vehicles (EVs) and have a showroom-ready models, called i-MIEV which will be introduced in the various markets.

As EVs eventually move to the mainstream, consumers will be different - just as they do today with the car - and will be looking for sportiness. Now, perception of EVs is that they slow and difficult 'sporty' but Mitsubishi Motors, with a long association with motorsports and models such as the Lancer Evo, want to show that EVs can not be sporty. Motorshow in Geneva this week, shows the model is called the i-MiEV Sport Air which is a concept that sporty EV.




I-MiEV Sport Air said in an indication of the direction can take EVs in the future. He also gives shape to the MMC's Drive @ earth, announced the company's tagline for the fun-to-drive car when, at the same time, placing new emphasis on environmental issues.

The concept model is distinguished by dpt "clear cutaway" roof panel that brings a variety of open feel to the interior (the word 'water') to a car exhilarating experience. Other features include second-generation lithium-ion battery module with improved electrodes, while the body using the new weight-reducing technology.

I-MiEV in the Water Sports i-MiEV need of back-midship platform and vehicle in a teardrop-shaped body which dramatically tapers towards the rear in a design that provides exceptional performance Aerodynamic. Styling is also a craft that sporty image by seamlessly integrating the region with extensive glassy body. Design features include front and rear light units neatly styled to display 3-dimensional, and the "clear cutaway" roof panel, which is designed to provide experience exhilarating car. Also has a solar panel inlay using Printed Circuit Board design.Inside in graphics, there are welcoming atmosphere with organic shapes and lighting to create a comfortable and calm during the two-room cabin. Sampul in cockpit design, on the other hand, is a style reminds drivers that a high performance potential of the car when he was sitting behind the wheel. Primary control and active all ergonomically grouped around a dial-type shifter, so for more positive location and operation by the driver.

The i-MiEV Sport Air features exterior and interior color that take on the "Japan Technology" as a theme in both projections friendly, approachable image and high-tech look. Blue exterior evokes images of clear blue sky exhilarating, while the use of pearl paint finish gives sheen to the highlights for the entire body of the view that good and friendly, while also projecting a futuristic environment-friendly image. Using high-contrast interior color scheme, grayish blue, and "greige" (an intermediate between gray and beige.) With the use of blue for the interior lighting and instrument lighting, tone-2 scheme is said to provide 'an advanced and high technology visible 'to the cabin atmosphere while also create a relaxed and reassuring.

I-MiEV in the Water Sports has the same rear-midship layout as the i-MiEV, but using a more powerful version of the permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that powers the base model, generate 60 kW of power (i-MiEV = 47 kW) and 230 Nm of torque (50 Nm more than i-MiEV). Cars also exploits wheelbase that long to find a large capacity lithium-ion batteries under the floor deck system. Center of gravity low and to improve driving stability, EV main system components (modules of the battery, inverter, battery power) is as low as possible. Roof panel is made of lightweight plastic and appropriate to facilitate the transfer of and to lower the car's center of gravity.

The modular structure of the body using the tailgate panel, and plastic to reduce weight around the rear axle where the EV powertrain components and systems that are installed, reaches the ideal 50:50 front / rear weight distribution.
