11 - Mitsubishi I MIEV SPORT AIR Concept

Derived from the Mitsubishi i MIEV, the SPORT AIR Concept explores the idea of an electric sports car. Longer by 20 cm and taller by 12 cm, it trades the cheeky look of its predecessor i MIEV for a more technical approach of the teardrop shape. Made of semi-transparent lightweight composite, the “clear cutaway” roof panel allows open air driving whilst retaining the structural integrity of the coupe. The 200 kg lithium-ion battery pack is located under the floor and allows for a very low centre of gravity; the powertrain components – including the motor and inverter – are arranged beneath the luggage compartment. An aluminium space-frame – a combination of aluminium extrusions and aluminium die casting – is light, rigid and strong, helping to improving performance by minimizing weight (940 kg).
Length 3,65 metres, wheelbase 2,55 metres.
