Mitsubishi to unveil European-spec i-MiEV at Paris motor show
6 September 2010

Mitsubishi will introduce the European-spec version of the i-MiEV electric car at the Paris Motor Show.

The European version has a rearranged centre stack in the instrument panel and redesigned front and rear bumpers to meet EU regulations.

Other changes include improvements to safety equipment, with the addition of Active Stability Control (ASC) and side and curtain airbags fitted as standard.

Last month, Mitsubishi reduced the UK launch pricing of the i-MiEV electric car to £28,990 – or £23,990 after the UK government’s £5k consumer incentive is taken into account.

Over 2300 i-MiEVs have been operating on Japanese roads since full production started in July 2009.

UK models have been involved in end-user trials with UK customers in the Coventry and Birmingham area since mid-December 2009. Deliveries will start in January 2011.
