    Geneva 2013: Mitsubishi CA-MiEV Concept

    Mitsubishi CA-MiEV Revealed With 186-Mile Electric Range

    Continuing its push in the electric vehicle segment, Mitsubishi will introduce an all-new electric vehicle tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, with both a style and an emissions free range far superior to the i-MiEV.

    While the Mitsubishi i-MiEV might be an incredibly efficient electric car, it’s also a rather basic piece of transportation that looks like nothing you’d want to be seen driving in. Thanks to photos of the car that have leaked out in advance of its debut, it’s obvious that big brother CA-MiEV changes all that with some stylish (though rather Prius-like) bodywork.

    The entire concept screams Honda to me, with the exception of only the grille. Overall though, I do like the design and think we can all agree that it is light years ahead of the design of the i-MiEV.

    but is worlds ahead of the iMiev

    Don't hate it. It looks a lot better than their current MiEV.

    The front facia seems a little busy. But, over all I do like it.

    I like - They should also offer a watered down variant with normal engines to go against the Sonic, Fit, etc.

    Judging by the seats, this car may be bigger than it looks. It is aggressively styled. I think it's time that Mitsubishi step up their game in the auto business. If the suggested e-range is true and the price is right, they may finally get noticed, again.
    6 speed transmissions are the future

    I don't understand why they are wasting resources here in NA. The public have spoken and your torch has been extinguished. Now don't go away mad Mitsu, just go away!

    I like how that looks.

    I like it, especially the creative sculpting of the front and rear end.

    You have to remember that this is a small car. Small cars have little sheet metal, and that means you have to be inventive. If you look at cars like the Sonic, the Fit, etc. they all look more or less the same. You're stuck because you have to get in the seats and some luggage room and fit it within a small frame. So they look like this.

    But you also have to remember that you can build electric cars that look like the Tesla S or what I hope is a midsize Voltec car from Buick and Opel, the Flextreme GT/E.
