Default Mitsubishi to display Concept-EZ MIEV @ 2006 Geneva Show

Mitsubishi to display Concept-EZ MIEV @ 2006 Geneva Show



Quote:
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will give the MITSUBISHI Concept-EZ1 MIEV2 compact mono-box concept vehicle and the Colt CZC coupe-cabriolet their world premieres at the 76th Geneva International Motor Show.

MITSUBISHI Concept-EZ MIEV uses four in-wheel motors and a lithium-ion battery system to drive all four wheels. MMC developed the Colt CZC coupe-cabriolet with Pininfarina S.p.A. of Italy. The 2006 Geneva Motor Show runs from February 28 through March 12 at the Geneva Palexpo exhibition and conference complex, opening to the general public on March 2.

MITSUBISHI Concept-EZ MIEV showcases MMC's MIEV concept for next-generation electric vehicles that employs in-wheel motors and a high-energy-density lithium-ion battery as core technologies. The concept car uses a 20kW outer rotor-type in-wheel motor on each wheel to generate a maximum 80kW (110PS) of power. Maximizing the space freed up by the MIEV design, which does away with a central powertrain thus resulting in a low flat floor layout, MITSUBISHI Concept-EZ MIEV realizes roomy interior space with an interior height that matches that of a large mono-box model despite its relatively low overall height of 1,750 mm

Looks like Mitsu gave a box a caffeine enema and slapped on some moon wheels...

While I understand the attraction of in-wheel motors from a packaging standpoint, they do really bad things to unsprung weight. Handling will suffer.

Still, interesting concept. Gotta wonder though: What happens when the wheels get salty and wet in winter conditions?
