A radical Mitsubishi i-MiEV for Pikes Peak 2012

While  last year Nissan chose to simply lighten the Leaf -to compete with a model as close to the production version as possible- Mitsubishi is taking a different approach that will certainly put this i-MiEV prototype under the spotlight! 

According to the first sketches, the electric city-car transforms in a bodybuilded open-wheeler, straight out of a science fiction movie!
Despite its hyper-athletic look, it will be based on the same powertrain and components as the standard model and will serve as a laboratory for testing components and reliability.

Behind the steering wheel, Hiroshi Masuoka that participated in no less than 21 Dakar, with consecutive victories in 2002 and 2003.
