I would expect the deal to close and be approved by regulators, etc. Then the impact on the iMiev product line will eventually be shown. However, I don't expect any change on our warranties or service and would be quite surprised if something negative was announced as to existing owners.

“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?

As long as the engineering done on them doesn't change, it may be an improvement. But, if Mitsubishi's engineering team starts following Nissan's standards, it may be a detriment. Yes, the LEAF has better range and faster charging, but the i-MiEV is more robust.

Raided? http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/a2 ... itsubishi/

An electric car range for a charge overstated?

Is that us?

Appears that i-Miev mileage was overstated: http://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transpo ... ectric-car

Not exactly sure what that means, miles per gallon, range?

Will we all get a rebate? Recall?
