Default Mitsubishi's CA-MiEV Concept Looks Like a Prius that Shrunk in the Dryer

Carscoop: http://www.carscoops.com/2013/03/mit...ooks-like.html

This is the new CA-MiEV, a Geneva Motor Show-bound concept study made by Mitsubishi to provide us an indication of the next generation of the brand's all-electric models, and which from certain angles, looks like a smaller Toyota Prius with more interesting design details (though, feel free to disagree).
According to the Japanese carmaker, the compact five-door hatchback incorporates many of the next-generation EV technologies under development at the company, including high-energy density batteries and high-efficiency EV systems such as electric motor, inverter, regenerative braking and wireless charging system.

These new systems work together with a much lighter and more aerodynamic body to offer the CA-MiEV a theoretical driving range of 300km or about 186 miles.

Other features present on the concept include magnetic resonance wireless charging technology and smartphone activated functions.

The glass/"flank"/wheel ratio is all sorts of screwed up on this concept.

Not quite. The Mitsubishi is much more pinched and egregious.

The Mitsu looks far better than the Prius. But it's a concept, so of course it does.

my local mitsu dealer has had 2 of the miev cars parked in the front for months. i dont think they are selling too good. maybe if i didnt look like a oversized golfcart it might catch on.

This concept looks much, much better than the current i-miev.
This one may actually sell.

I actually like the design of that car. I think If they marketed it well, it would do great.
