Information about Mitsubishi MiEV

MIEV (Mitsubishi In-wheel motor Electric Vehicle) or MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) is the name given by Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors to its alternative propulsion technologies. It was introduced in the Mitsubishi Colt EV, a Colt-based concept car first exhibited at 2005 (16 years ago) Tokyo Motor Show which used a series of lithium-ion batteries to power electric motors located in the wheels. Subsequent electrically powered vehicles have included a 200 kW Lancer Evolution, and a battery-equipped Mitsubishi i kei car which is aimed for introduction into the world market by 2010 (11 years ago). The car will be tested in consumer situations the U.S. State of Oregon.


Before developing the first MIEV concept, Mitsubishi built several electric vehicles in the 1990 (31 years ago) as they attempted to develop alternative propulsion systems. Development began in the 1970s, and 36 Libero EVs were sold between 1993 (28 years ago) and 1996 (25 years ago). Their FTO EV broke the record for the furthest distance achieved by an electric vehicle in 24 hours when it covered 2,142.3 km on dec. 19–20, 1999 (22 years ago), and following this success they entered an Eclipse EV in the annual Shikoku EV Rally in 2001 (20 years ago), completing over 400 km on a single charge.


MIEV motors are constructed using an in-wheel motor rotor, an in-wheel motor stator, a rotor bracket, stator bracket and inverter directly behind the brakes. Engine power output is 47 kW and torque output 180 N·m. The batteries can be charged from a standard 15 A/200 V car charger in seven hours and with a three-phase electric power charged in 25 minutes (for up to 80 percent of full capacity). The batteries are located under the floorpan and in the Colt uses 22 Li-ion modules to produce a cumulative 325 V. The design allows for an entirely electric vehicle, or a hybrid using the batteries to supplement a traditional internal combustion engine or a hydrogen fuel cell.


Mitsubishi Colt EV (2005, 16 years ago)
Based on the platform of a Mitsubishi Colt, and first exhibited in 2005 (16 years ago), it was the first Mitsubishi EV where mass production and public sales were mooted, with a suggested price tag of US$19,000. The car has a top speed of 150 kilometres per hour (93 mph) and an estimated range of 150 kilometres (93 mi).

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (4 walls) MIEV (2005, 16 years ago)
A Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (4 walls) IX sedan fitted with four 50 kW motors, it took part in the 2005 (16 years ago) Shikoku EV Rally. The Lancer is capable of 180 kilometres per hour, and has a range of 250 kilometres.

Mitsubishi Concept-CT MIEV (2006, 15 years ago)
The first MIEV prototype based on the platform and "rear midship" layout of the Mitsubishi i kei car, the Concept-CT is a sport compact prototype, and was first exhibited at the 2006 (15 years ago) North American International Auto Show.

Mitsubishi Concept-EZ MIEV (2006, 15 years ago)
The Concept-EZ is a compact mono-box prototype exhibited at the 2006 (15 years ago) Geneva Motor Show, and designed to showcase the benefits of MIEV technology on the car's interior design. Each wheel is located as close to the corner of the vehicle as possible, and houses a 20 kW outer rotor in-wheel motor. With no central powertrain the floor could be kept low and flat to liberate extra interior space, despite the vehicle's modest height of 1,750 millimetres (69 in).

Mitsubishi i MiEV (2006, 15 years ago)
Also based on the Mitsubishi i kei car, it was first exhibited at the 22nd International Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exposition in Yokohama. This vehicle was the first where the "i" in MIEV stood for "innovative", as it eschews the in-wheel motors in favour of a more conventional array of batteries, motor and inverter to replace the "rear midship" engine and fuel tank of the conventional car. MMC provided three power companies with vehicles in 2006 (15 years ago) and 2007 (14 years ago) in order to conduct joint research to evaluate how fast-charge infrastructure may be developed for EVs. Fleet testing by five power companies was conducted in 2007 (14 years ago). The car has a range of 130 kilometres (80 mi) for the 16 kW·h lithium-ion pack and 160 kilometres (100 mi) for the 20 kW·h pack. Top speed is 130 kilometres per hour (80 mph). Also known as the i-EV, it is planned for sale or lease in Japan and other markets in 2009 (12 years ago) and 2010 (11 years ago) It may also be sold in European markets as the Peugeot 1001 (1020 years ago) and Citroën Re-Volt. (in the European Union in 2010-08-01).

During early 2009 (12 years ago) the i MiEV was exhibited in Australia at the Melbourne Motor Show, following which it extensively toured Australia.

During Jan. - Mar. 2009 (12 years ago) the i MiEV was brought to New Zealand as part of an electric vehicle trial, which saw the i MiEV travel the length of the country testing infrastructure and demonstrating the vehicle to the public.

Mitsubishi i MiEV Sport (2007, 14 years ago)
The third concept vehicle based on the platform of the Mitsubishi i, and exhibited at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show in late 2007 (14 years ago). In-wheel motors made a return in the front wheels, while a single motor powers the rears. Designed to showcase the sporting potential of zero-emissions vehicles, the i's space efficient exterior design was heavily modified into a more aerodynamic 2+2 fastback silhouette. The company's Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system developed for the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (4 walls) X was also utilized.
