Mitsubishi recently rolled out its i-MiEV Sport Air (which is based on its cousin, the 100% electric i-MiEV) at the 2012 New York International Auto Show, and Inhabitat was on the scene to take a peek! The 5-door bubble-like hatchback concept car features a stronger engine than its predecessor as well as a solar panel and a large, removable translucent roof panel. Best of all, if it's anything like the i-MiEV, you can expect the Sport Air to be quite affordable (not to mention the savings from not having to depend on rising fuel prices).

    I would really like to know if and when would it be on the market in the USA I am really liking the concept of this car and much more appealing to me then it’s former model imev and the interior looks great from the pictures I’ve seen on line

    The iMiev Sport Air concept, in one form or another, has been making the rounds at car shows since 2009. This latest one looks sweet . . . certainly more stylish than the standard 4-door iMiev, which is a production model and just now showing up in the North American market. Let’s hope Mitsubishi follows on with this one soon. We need an affordable little sport coupe to reinvigorate the EV market.

    Thanks for the review Amanda, but please remember that electric vehicles do not have engines, they use motors.
