The CA-MiEV is one of two concepts at the Geneva Motor Show that demonstrate Mitsubishi’s latest green technology.
With the CA-MiEV Concept, Mitsubishi is showcasing an array of green tech it intends to roll out in it range of vehicles. Building on the iMiEV that rolled out in 2009 and the GR-HEV it also debuted in Geneva, the CA-MiEV boasts next-generation EV systems and high-density batteries that, combined with a light-weight body and advanced aero, offers a 187-mile driving range, which is about the average distance covered in a week by the average European driver.
The high-efficiency powertrain includes an integrated power unit made up of an 80kW motor, inverter and charger, a compact flat battery pack, magnetic resonance wireless charging tech, and high-density lithium-ion batteries. The design is heavily influenced by maximizing aerodynamic performance, with the sleek, arrow-shaped concept sporting a sloping rear roof line as well as boomerang-sculpted lights. Advanced connectivity features on the CA-MiEV concept include automatic emailing in case of theft, automatic e-calling in case of emergency, remote engine start and remote energy monitoring.
