Mitsu concept set to electrify

Mitsubishi joins the growing electric car fray with this zero-emission "pocket rocket" concept called the i MIEV Sport "Air".

Going with the idea that not much thought has been given to proper electric sports cars (by mainstream manufacturers, of course), Mitsubishi has come up with the idea for this little electric vehicle.

The i MIEV Sport "Air", with its transparent removable roof, will be showcased at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Described as an all-electric "sports compact", the concept combines the powerful acceleration and high torque characteristics common to electrically driven vehicles with sports-car like dynamics thanks to its lithium-ion battery being positioned close to the ground to give it a low centre of gravity.

Although not outlining any production details for now, Mitsubishi has said this concept signals the direction a future sports electric vehicle created by the manufacturer could take.
