Mitsubishi recently brought its iMiEV road show
down under to Australia. One reviewer who sampled the little electric four door was pleased with the driving experience but less impressed with some other aspects of the car. As we and others that have driven the iMiEV can attest, the 2,400-pound mini car has more than adequate performance from its 47 kW motor. The driver did however, complain that the wheels look too small car for the car. While that is certainly a matter of personal taste, the very cheap looking interior might well turn away customers being asked to pony up $27,000. The gray hard plastics that dominate the interior of the iMiEV are typical for most low end cars, including many Mitsubishis. Given the cost of batteries, it seems likely that Mitsubishi will upgrade the interior to match price tag before production starts.
