The iMiEV is an electric version of Mitsubishi's i car, a model on sale in Japan with a small gas engine. The car's name starts with the model, i, and ends in MiEV, and acronym for Mitsubishi innovative electric vehicle.
The iMiEV uses one electric motor to power the rear wheels. Mitsubishi's electric vehicle efforts, under the MiEV moniker, first focused on using in-wheel motors, but Mitsubishi scrapped that idea in the current version of the iMiEV.
The iMiEV has charging ports on both sides to charge up its lithium ion batteries. On a full charge, the iMiEV can go about 100 miles.
Being an electric vehicle, the iMiEV has a simple, one speed transmission. The spacious interior includes a stereo, air conditioning, navigation, and a digital speedometer.
