Electric cars are slowly gaining demand and in all probability will constitute a larger population among vehicles. Mitsubishi has also started off with production of electric cars since a long time now. 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is one such car which will be getting its facelift already among electric mini cars. Mainly objective of this facelift is to make it more attractive and tempting for customers so that electric cars get sold out in more numbers. This Japanese automaker has enough potential to achieve that and future will decide the fruit.
2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV Concept
Concept and working of electric cars is way simpler than fuel driver car. Test drives for this facelift will be starting for next month. Mitsubishi i-MiEV 2016 is a small and compact car. Electric cars need more time to get exotic and bigger. For the time being, these small cars are creating no major issue. Front part is pushed backwards as there is no such bonnet or space for holding engine. Electric motor needs little space.
2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV Exterior and Interior
Headlights are of standard size and oval in shape with one side pointed. There are two indicator lamps below both headlights and following are two fog lamps. So this car is pretty well furnished with basic requirements. Fog lamps are of smaller radius but will serve the purpose. Front bumper is quite bigger and of body color. Ground clearance is quite decent and neither too high to low the ground nor too high to make a bad appearance. There is no such grille except a small rectangular slit in bottom of front bumper. This will help exchange air between environment and car interior. Alloy wheels installed in this car are not very attractive and just there as mere alloy wheels. Interior space might be an issue for 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV, but one must also consider that it is a mini car.
The brand has tried their best to offer as much leg space as they could. Interior design and dash board looks well designed. All consoles are kept in center alignment and rest space remains clean and tidy. There are no controls mounted on steering wheel which can be on down side of this car. All essential consoles are present on i-MiEV 2016 such as climate control, Bluetooth, navigation, audio system, etc. There is also a seven inches touch screen display along with real time analyzing traffic data. With higher version, one can get rear view camera as well as USB port.
