on the company’s more than 35 of involvement in advanced electric development, Mitsubishi Motors has its first all-electric production bound for the North American

Based on the very popular i minicar in the Japanese market, roomy and practical four-door model serves as the basis for the new battery-powered Mitsubishi i for the North market. The zero tailpipe i will be the first North production vehicle to be powered by innovative Electric Vehicle technology cutting edge engineering that will as the basis for future ultra-environmentally-friendly from the company. Gone are automotive systems including a engine, transmission and a fuel having been replaced by components including a lithium-ion system, electric motor and an battery charging system in the i. This electric vehicle has proved itself a viable and form of transportation as Mitsubishi has selling the car in its home market the summer of 2009; production has commenced for the European-spec i-MiEV, deliveries beginning later year.

Mitsubishi anticipates an initial out of the i to its dealership network in the western States (specifically California, Washington and Hawaii) in November with entry into the market to follow by March and nationwide availability by the end of 2012. The MSRP is expected to be around not including Federal and available financial incentives.

The new production i bound for the North American further differentiates itself its Japanese- and European-spec versions a retooled, larger body to even more interior for four adults, along new North American-spec bumpers and rear for enhanced protection in the of a collision. Other noteworthy measures on the North American-spec include airbags that passengers and control deployment Active Stability Control and a Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPMS) – all included as equipment.

Easier on the Environment

Thanks to its efficient all-electric powertrain, the i produces zero on-road making it a zero emissions What’s more, when in the CO2 emissions produced by the power that generated the electricity provides the energy for the i, this Mitsubishi production car only about 30% of the CO2 emitted by the 660cc engine that powers the of the car in its home market. And the reduction in CO2 even more statistically considering that the 660cc engine found in the Japanese is only about one-third of the of the typical four -cylinder engine powering cars in the American market.

Additional energy efficiency can be from the i model’s electric thanks to Eco (Economy) and Brake modes that supplement the standard Drive mode. The Eco limits excessive power from reaching the motor the Brake mode increases the of the regenerative braking system when driving downhill) to even more energy into the car’s bank of batteries.

Low Cost Fuel

The operating cost per mile of the Mitsubishi i is significantly cheaper that of a comparable gasoline-powered In Japan, the operating cost is 1/3 that of the 660cc gasoline version of the car, and the operating can drop even more than that of its internal-combustion by taking advantage of reduced rates by recharging during or off-peak hours*.

Clever = Spacious Accommodations, Outstanding

Thanks to the vehicle’s excellent and engineering in relation to its size, uniquely styled automobile an excellent level of safety, room for four adults handy cargo space.

How can a car possess such ample volume? Mitsubishi engineers cleverly placed the high-capacity batteries beneath the floor, and the motor, inverter and battery have been located and below the rear passenger This setup also has the benefit of lowering the vehicle’s of gravity.

Along with the being placed at the farthest of the vehicle, this gives the i stability along with agile handling.

Advanced Powertrain

The power system of a permanent magnet synchronous motor and a high energy lithium-ion battery pack consists of 88 cells (22 modules, 4 cells per module) for a maximum capacity of 16 kWh. The battery can be installed either transversely or this packaging flexibility them to be stored underneath the floor. All 88 cells reside an extremely sturdy stainless capsule to provide maximum

The i also features a groundbreaking battery charging system allows the vehicle to be charged the onboard household charger either 110V (15A) or (15A) power sources or by a system that utilizes a 220V power supply. The times from a very low to completely full are approximately 8 at 220V and 16 hours at 110V. The 220V quick-charger can take a low all the way up to an 80% battery charge in under a fast 30 minutes. The three-phase makes use of a special outlet is accessible on the driver’s side of the while the onboard household outlet is located on the passenger of the i.

Strategic Research and Logistical

The Mitsubishi i has undergone several of exhaust testing and evaluation not internally by the Japanese auto but with several other including seven utility in Japan, as well as prototype programs with major States utilities Southern Edison, Pacific Gas and Electric (PGE), Portland General and the Tennessee Valley Authority.

And in an effort to help expand and the logistical side of the electric ownership experience, Mitsubishi has with corporate titans consumer electronics retailer Buy and leading power management Eaton Corporation. Best through its 20,000-plus strong in its Geek Squad division, has to provide site analysis and to manage installation of a Level 2 Station it will sell its stores for Mitsubishi i owners to use in own homes. Designed and manufactured by – a company that has than 20 years of experience in electrical and hybrid power for commercial vehicles – 220V charging station cut the time it takes to charge the batteries in half when to a standard 110V electrical
