Mitsubishi will introduce the European-spec version of its i-MiEV electric car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show next month.
The company said that the price of the European-spec Mitsubishi i-MiEV will differ by country but will be set to around €33,000 – €35,000, so that the final cost to the customer after government incentives (where applicable) remains under €30,000 in a majority of the countries it is to be sold in.
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 and 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.
To celebrate 40 years of electric development at Mitsubishi Motors, a further display in Hall 8 will present the 1989 Mitsubishi Minicab EV for the first time in Europe, as part of “The Incredible Collection” heritage show.
