Mitsubishi will introduce the European-spec version of its i-MiEV 100% electric vehicle at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
Mitsubishi plans to roll out the European-spec i-MiEV from December of this year in 14 countries including the UK, France, Germany and further expand the European rollout from 2011.
The price (including car and batteries) of the European-spec i-MiEV will differ by country but will be set to around €33,000 – €35,000 (or equivalent) so that the final cost to the customer after government incentives (where applicable) remains under €30,000 (or equivalent) in a majority of the countries it is to be sold in.
Compared with the Japanese market version, the European-spec i-MiEV includes specific features such as new design to the front and rear bumpers to meet EU regulations and improved interior.
Safety has also been improved with the addition of Active Stability Control (ASC) as well as side and curtain airbags as standard equipment.
A total of 12 vehicles will be displayed at its stand including the recently introduced ASX compact crossover equipped with MMC’s all-new “low impact” diesel engine.
The Paris Motor Show will be held at Paris Expo – Porte de Versailles in Paris, France from Thursday September 30th to Sunday October 17th (open to the general public from Saturday October 2nd).
