In the ever-tightening electric vehicle race, manufacturers need to make their electric car stand out above the competition. Since the Mitsubishi i-Miev will be available in North America any day now, Mitsubishi is going all out in an effort to show the versatility of the Mitsubishi i-Miev.
Mitsubishi took an i-Miev to the Toyosu district of Tokyo and parked it inside a small cafe. There, a model/actress host and a culinary student used only heat and energy provided by the Mitsubishi i-Miev to power the stove. The key to this demonstration was the upcoming external power supply unit slated to be available within the year. The unit hooks up to the Mitsubishi i-Miev’s charging port and provides up to 1500W of power – more than enough to power the small stove needed to cook for this demonstration.
Higashihara commented after the demonstration that ‘even useless girly boys who can’t light a fire can still cook without embarrassing themselves’ by using thei Mitsubishi i-Miev.
