We started our research into electric vehicle (EV) technology way back in 1970. The i-MiEV is the result of over 40 years of development and is the first ever mass-produced electric vehicle.
Powerful electric motor
A state-of-the-art power source
The lithium-ion battery is located underneath the floor of the i-MiEV, it consists of 88 high energy cells. They’ll deliver enough power for the electric motor, air conditioning and cabin heater.
Charge the battery as your drive
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy it possesses due to its motion. In the case of the i-MiEV, it's the energy gained from the car moving forward. This smart car can harness this energy to charge the battery even when you're driving. Which is pretty handy, as you won't have to plug it in to charge it so often.
Better for the environment
Looking for the exhaust pipe? You won’t find one - the i-MiEV is 100% electric. As there’s no petrol engine there are zero CO2 emissions released into the atmosphere. We also took great care to use recycled materials wherever we could: the front and rear bumpers, instrument panels and door trim are all made out of recycled polypropylene materials.
