A black I-MIEV doesn't actually look that dissimilar to the original Weber kettle BBQ really...

Curse you phb10186, for planting that idea! I've got an old tilt-down bicycle carrier for the hitch receiver, and now have quite the itch to mount a black Weber kettle grill on it for tailgating...

Mitsu might have actually increased their sales of the little car - with the optional 'tailgate BBQ'..... But to make it flow, it should really be an electric grill... 8-)

Great, now I REALLY want to mount my "Solar Death Ray" to my iMiev hitch to make a solar cooker for tailgating.

Only in America would that increase sales. In the UK, you may prefer the '4 seat transportable cream tea dining table'. On a serious note, the Brits are hopeless at securing towable stuff / items to roof racks - don't ask me why, but as a nation we just don't do it well. May be a London thing - we are especially useless at that manly stuff... just pay someone with an old van to do it for you and save the car.

If a 110cc/ 8bhp Honda Wave step-through bike can tow a cement mixer, think of all the good stuff an I-MiEV can tow.
