These are the official photos of the US-spec Mitsubishi i-MiEV full-electric city car, which will have its world premiere at the LA Auto Show. Americans loves everything big and so Mitsubishi decided to fatten up the i-MiEV to appeal more to the US market. Compared to its Japanese and European counterparts, the US-spec i-MiEV measures 3,680 mm / 144.9″ (+258mm or +9.8″) in length, 1,585 mm / 62.4″ (+110mm or +4.3″) in width, 1,615 mm / 63.6″ (+5mm or +0.2″) in height. The bumper will be different as well and there will be slight changes for the interior.
” The i-MiEV features an enhanced, enlarged body structure to secure plenty of space for four adults and better meet the expectations of U.S. consumers,” said Mitsubishi in a statement.
The Japanese and European version of the i-Miev can be seen below (in red) for your comparison and the gallery for the US spec version is below.
