Re: Poo Powered i-MiEV

I made a similar comment to praxidice's last year, wondered where it went -- turns out this is a duplicate thread:

Re-Imagined: Mitsubishi i-MiEV Rendered As a Tiny Nissan EV

From InsideEVs.com: https://insideevs.com/next-mitsubishi-m ... nissan-ev/

Not quite as cute as the original, IMHO. Kinda looks like a Spark.

I can add that a regular 151R is a perfect fit -- no boards needed. :)

An excellent presentation of the science behind AGW and an explanation of how solid it is. Too bad most of the people who really need to see it never will.

If you remove the neutral prong from a 14-30 plug, it will fit in...
