The new 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is powered by a The AC synchronous permanent magnet motor develops 49kW (66bhp) and a high 180Nm (133 lb.ft) of torque .

It takes 7 hours Battery charging from a normal domestic electricity supply and from rapid charging point i-MiEV can be charged from empty to 80% in as little as 30 minutes.
The i-MiEV has three driving modes, marked D, B and C on the gearshift panel. D mode is for urban driving, tuned to be energy efficient; B mode increases regenerative braking during downhill driving; C mode decreases it for smoother driving characteristics on longer runs.
The i-MiEV is equipped with a 6-airbag system to provide protection from all sides. Curtain airbags extending along both sides protect front and 2nd-row occupants in a side collision, while the 1st-row occupants are additionally protected by front and side airbags.
The i-MiEV also includes, The Stability Control function which automatically controls the brakes and motor torque to stabilise the car and the Traction Control function automatically brakes the slipping wheel and governs motor torque to enable a smoother start.
Thanks to our proprietary MiEV operating system, the Mitsubishi i gets an astonishing 112 combined MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) that clearly beats the competition when it comes to efficiency. That’s more than the Nissan Leaf and every other vehicle sold in America.
