The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is an all-electric micro-car, based on a Japanese-market gasoline-powered version. The rear-drive i-MiEV is powered by a 49-kW (66-horsepower) AC synchronous electric motor, which draws from an 88-cell, 330V lithium-ion battery pack. The unit produces 145 foot-pounds of instant torque and is mated to a single-speed reduction-gear transmission. It is capable of going 62 miles or more on a charge, with a top speed of 80 mph.
