Mitsubishi i MIEV coming to KL




In Singapore, it calls Mitsubishi I, in Malaysia it calls I-MIEV... pronounce as MIEW? MIAO?
Here some article about I-MIEV from star motoring.com

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia will be showcasing the i MIEV electric car at the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) from Dec 3-5 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

The IPTC is considered to be be one of the foremost technical conferences globally for the energy industry, and issues tackled are in the areas of energy conservation, climate change and alternative energy. Over 4,000 participants from around the world are expected to attend the conference.

MMM hopes that through the showcase of the i MIEV plug-in electric vehicle, it will promote greater appreciation for the superior practicality and environmental viability of such vehicles. The i MiEV’s lithium-ion pack will also be on display.

The battery, which takes about approximately seven hours to be charged using 200V current, gives the i MiEV a 160km range and a top speed of 130kmh.

The i MiEV is slated to be launched in Japan next year; presently, Mitsubishi is conducting fleet tests in cooperation with several Japanese electric power companies.
