Mitsubishi Electric Car iMiEV Japanese Testing
The i MiEV has been brought to Australia to conduct the first-ever EV Feasibility Study in the country. The study will allow key stakeholders to personally experience the vehicle in a hands-on, real world drive experience.

Mitsubishi i-MIEV Electric Car unveil
Mitsubishi's first ever electric car, the all new Mitsubishi i-MiEV, has arrived in Australia.
Delivering zero C02 drivetime emissions, i-MiEV was unveiled at the recent Melbourne International Motor Show and is currently undertaking feasibility studies throughout Australia.
Here's your chance to explore the future of sustainable motoring.

MightyBoyEV Part 3
The MightyBoyEV has had a Lithium Upgrade! 24 180Ah LiFePO4 cells have replaced the Lead Acid batteries. Each Elcon charger will deliver 16Amps at 87.6V into 24 cells.
Come for a ride with us in the new improved MightyBoyEV in HD video.

EV Review - i-MiEV Part 1
EV Review. Our Electric Vehicle review team Bruce & Eric will test drive and review Electric Vehicles as they become available in Australia.
This review site also assumes the viewer has moved on from all the classic myths about why EVs are bad for the earth and is just a passing fancy. For those sharing such views there are plenty of forums and TV series such as Top Gear that will reinforce stereotype views of the larger commercial motoring industry supporting faster and higher speed transport or better "Off Road" hardware. We are talking about simple point "A" to point "B" comfortable transport in a mechanically simplified vehicle largely recharged form renewable energy sources such as the solar panels mounted on our houses. We also support pure simple state of the art battery plug-in technology over complex hybrid vehicle technology.
This is Part 1 of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV review.
New Electric Cars Are Better
Just showing off some of the cool new electric cars and putting to rest some of the myths out there. When people think of electric cars, typically they think of older ugly slower models, lead-acid batterys, and BS propaganda they've read slamming the "electric cars"(as though they all carried the exact same attributes)
The battery technology has changed(and will change even more when nanowire battery becomes common), the speeds have changed, the climate versatility has changed, the prices are changing, the car companies are changing... everything is changing for the better. I expect to see a lot more support for EV's during and after 2010.

Mitsubishi i MiEV electric car
Mitsubishi i MiEV electric powered by lithium-ion batteries with 100 miles (160km) range and top speed of 80 mph (120km).
This car will be available in UK/Japan mid-2009 and Australia/NZ late-2009 (all Right Hand Drive countries)
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it costs just $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at $20.00 per 100kms
James Allen test drives the Mitsubishi i-MiEV
James Allen drops Formula One commentating duties for a week to test drive the current Mitsubishi i-MiEV pure electric car in and around London. James gives his own personal appraisal of what it's like to own the i-MiEV, identifying both pros and cons.
Apologies for the bumpy in-car footage, caused by a heavy SLR camera on a long arm rather than a rough ride from the i-MiEV.
