Mitsubishi i.jpg

Mitsubishi i. 2005 to date (prod. 89,084 to end of 2012). 5-door sedan. M/R, 658 cm³ (I3 DOHC); 47 kW electric. In all the literature as Mitsubishi i, spelt with lowercase, in the age of the Apple iPod. Overpriced, narrow car, but practically designed in that most of the length is occupied by its cabin, but overpriced in most markets for a 660 cm³ keijidōsha car. Takes concept of Mini Spiritual concept car and original Smart: mid-engined, rear-wheel drive. However, far better than Smart with four doors, four seats; fulfils city-car purpose admirably. Styling by Frenchman Olivier Boulay. Production commenced December 2005 for January 2006 deliveries. Electric i-MiEV model from 2009, badge-engineered as Citroën C-Zero and Peugeot Ion.

Manufacturing locations: Kurashiki, Okayama, Japan; Mizushima, Japan

Marque: Mitsubishi
