Mitsubishi has decided to branch out and offer their i-Miev electric vehicle customers more options. For the 2012 model year in Japan, Mitsubishi is offereing a cheaper version, and a longer range version of the Mitsubishi i-Miev.
In order to appeal to a wider range of potential customers, Mitsubishi paid attention to reviews of current owners and what they thought did or didn’t need improving on the Mitsubishi i-Miev.
One of the new versions of the 2012 Mitsubishi i-Miev is dubbed the ‘M’. The price has been lowered over $15,000 US and has sacrificed 40 kms off of the 160km range the 2011 Mitsubishi i-Miev had.
The ‘G’ version of the 2012 Mitsubishi i-Miev gets extended range, 180kms rather than the 160kms of the 2011 Mitsubishi i-Miev, and still even costs less than the 2011 model!
This is just more evidence that battery technology and costs get lower as production increases.
