Here’s Your Chance to Tell Mitsubishi How to Make its i MiEV

Mitsubishi i MiEV

You’ve already read about my i MiEV test drive, but now Mitsubishi is asking you what you think about the i MiEV. Electric cars still haven’t really hit the market, and the main obstacle is still consumer acceptance. That means that even though this kind of survey might usually be easy to blow off as unimportant, Mitsubishi will probably put a lot of consideration into what you say about the car.

So, head on over the the survey and let your voice be heard. Are you looking forward to the i MiEV coming stateside?

Thanks to ABG for the tip.

iMiEV … good job Mitsubishi … safety and speed are the conflicting items, just make the body more “inflatable raft” and keep the AC motor for better speed and power / battery, control.

Sell it at the normed out level of a comparable gas powered auto – $23k will be the magic mark, lose a few peso’s to build a loyal clientel.

I think that a fairly natural market for this vehicle is as the family second vehicle. The fairly predictable one or two person commute with a consistent distance should work well with an electric vehicle. The primary vehicle could be larger and conventionaly powered, allowing for less predictable travel disances and larger loads.

Why don’t you put a Perpetual motion charging system in a vehicle, and there will not need to be so many batteries required to run the car? This will increase the mileage of a vehicle to the point that we do not need a recharge.

Implement the 4 wheel motors, control them by AC drive, and add an emergency small size diesel charger-generator. Increase the capacity size of the battery for more kilometers, and there is the ideal future car. If you give it a mini van form shape for more cargo, would be even more space for the battery.
Sell it for a reasonable price, and there it is the good business.
I would love to have a kind of car!
