Mitsubishi CA-MiEV Images Leak Out Before Geneva Debut
Mitsubishi is debuting not one, but two plug-in concepts at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Just moments ago we posted the first images of Mitsubishi GR-HEV, a plug-in hybrid truck concept that the Japanese automaker will debut tomorrow in Geneva.
Now, we’ve uncovered the first photos of the sport CA-MiEV Concept, a pure electric vehicle that will hit the stage in Geneva tomorrow, too.
We’ve reported on the CA-MiEV in the recent past, but only had teaser images to share. This time, stock photos are out and it’s obvious that the CA-MiEV bares almost no resemblance to the egg-shapped Mitsubishi i-MiEV available today.
The CA-MiEV is clearly sportier in appearance and makes a bold statement from all angles.
While we don’t have any additional details on the CA-MiEV at the moment, we’ll share what we learned from Mitsubishi a few weeks back:
“As a showcase of the various technologies, MMC intends to introduce across its range of global vehicles, this sleek Concept CA-MiEV vehicle which can accommodate next generation EV systems and high density batteries. Lightweight with advanced aerodynamics, the CA-MiEV will offer a 300 km (186 miles) driving range, perfectly suited for suburban and country daily life.”
As we noted before, 186 miles is not a realistic figure if the CA-MiEV ever where to be EPA rated. Figure 110 miles or so under EPA test guidelines, but it’s just a concept for now, so any form of actual testing would be a long ways away.
Check out the images and then drop a comment to let us know what you think of Mitsubishi’s latest plug-in concept. We think it’s quite the looker. Over the top? Yes, but aren’t all concepts?
