2010 Mitsubishi i MiEV: What Is It?

0811_27_z2010_mitsubishi_i_mievfront_three_quarter_viewDo you think that America is finally ready for the very first electric city car?  Well, no matter if you think that we are or not, Mitsubishi thinks that we are and that is one of the main reasons why they have come up with the Mitsubishi I MiEV car!  This incredible car actually premiered earlier this year at the New York auto show and while it might be a Japanese-made car, it is actually completely electric and there is no gas needed for this car.

Are you curious as to how it works?  Well, it actually runs on lithium-ion batteries, which in total weighs about 450 pounds and they are attached beneath the rear seats.  You charge this car in the trunk area and to be honest, this car is going to be one hot car as soon as the concept is totally improved and all of the tweaks are worked out.

The Mitsubishi I MiEV is near silent and while it might not be a sports car, I have to say that the fact it can get up to 35 miles per hour, that is incredible!

Feast Your Eyes on the New Fiat

01-fiat-500c-1280It has to be said — how cute is the Fiat 500C? Now, it is quite true, most people do not immediately think “cute” when they think of a Fiat, but come on, how can you resist this car? It is something like a Fiat, a VW Bug, and a Mini Cooper, all rolled up into one adorable little car.

However, recently the Italian auto manufacturer has been busy, making deals and moving on with mergers — we need only look at the recent Chrysler deal — so we definitely cannot take the Fiat 500C lightly. In fact, currently, for the first time ever, the company has sold more cars outside of Italy than inside of Italy.

Classified — and you can plainly see why — as a retro hatchback, over half of the sales of the Fiat 500C have occurred outside of Italy. Sadly it will not be featured inside the United States for a couple of years yet, but when it does, you can bet it will go fast.
