US-Spec Mitsubishi i-MiEV Production Debuts
In order to be sold in North America, the i-MiEV has been fitted with an advanced airbag system that detects passengers’ seating position and controls deployment force, and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The car also has slightly more grunt in order to meet the preferences of customers in North America.
In addition to this, it also has new front and rear bumpers for enhanced protection and stability along with a larger body. Mitsubishi first started selling the i-MiEV in Japan in July 2009, and subsequently exported it to European countries in 2010.
