Geneva Auto Show world premiere: Mitsubishi Concept-EZ MIEV
Mitsubishi Motors' new Concept-EZ MIEV compact concept vehicle gets its world premiere at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show in March, alongside the new Pininfarina-designed Colt CZC coupe-cabriolet.
We showed you the Colt earlier this month, but this sketch is the first we've seen of the new mono-box concept vehicle. The Concept-EZ is another of Mitsubishi's next-generation electric vehicle concepts, using the MIEV in-wheel motor design to replace a more traditional central powertrain.
The concept car uses a 20kW outer rotor-type motor in each wheel, powered by a lithium-ion battery system. The "EZ" moniker refers to the easy-to-use, flat-floor design of the vehicle's interior, made possible by the in-wheel powertrain.
