Mitsubishi i MiEV - Click above for high-res image gallery

Plans for Mitsubishi's iMiEV – deliveries start in Japan this month – continue to evolve. Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko has said that upcoming editions of the electric jellybean (OK, he didn't call it that) could have a range of about 200 km (124 miles). That's the new target distance for Mitsubishi's future range of EVs, and is higher than the 100-mile range for the i MiEV that we've heard about for a while. Masuko said Mitsubishi is also considering offering EVs with a variety of ranges depending on how much a customer is willing to spend. More yen = more miles.

Another tidbit revealed in the article in Business Week: Masuko has been chauffered in a i MiEV for the past 18 months. As we heard last month, a plug-in hybrid version of the i MiEV will go on sale in 2013. Thanks to Yanquetino for the tip!
