Re: New Sins and Old Sins...Mitsu Fuel Economy

“I must step down so that a fundamental reform can take place in the vehicle development department,” said Mitsubishi’s Mr. Aikawa, who formerly led that division.


Will that be good or bad for BEVs?

The topic is really deserving of it's own thread. Nissan needs the PHEV SUVs, but may relegate Mistubishi Motors to a kei car manufacturer, much as Toyota did with Daihatsu.

Re: Teapot gets a brand new traction pack under warranty

Glad to hear you got the car back, and repairs were covered under warranty. Somewhat disturbing to hear that the problems began after "routine servicing" at the dealership responsible for the repairs. My trust in car dealerships ran out years ago.

Re: Flaps in the front of the car

NA Spec has them. They might help aerodynamics in front of the tires, or sacrificial to prevent front bumper curb rash, providing the auditory scraping sound before the paint or tire is impacted. http://www.gtopcars.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/2016-Mitsubishi-i-MiEV-Front-Bumper.jpg

Re: Camping with an i-miev

I guess I'm old school. I think there's plenty of room in the car for a couple of back packs, sleeping bags, and a tent.

Re: Mitsubishi learns from previous electric mistakes

$3000, was it too low or too high? Even with this add, the price for iMiev in US was significantly smaller compared with the price in Europe. How many times/hours they advertised in TV/radio?

Re: How long will it be before electric cars will be the nor

The last I had seen, the average age of a car on the road was about 11 years. For every new car or two sold, there's a 20 year old Honda Civic or 30 year old Olds 88 crawling around. That means a 20 year generational turnover. I would say we might see more electrics sold than ICE in another 20 years...
