    All-electric version of the new Mirage?

    Some sources suggest that an electric version of the Mirage car may be developed. Seems unusual though, with the i-MiEV in production already:


    with a vehicle this small, it's all but assured that Mitsubishi will take some of the lessons learned from its i-MiEV project to produce an all-electric model.
    Source - Autoblog: http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/01/m...t-geneva-2011/

    Mitsubishi's own press release about its "Global Small" concept car (on which the Mirage is based) says:

    "e" for "electric vehicle": as a further environmentally friendly measure – and a direct effect of its fully integrated Global Small architecture - e-compact is engineered to accommodate a further variant, fitted with a 100% electric powertrain.

    I've been wondering the same thing now that the i-MiEV is no longer being sold in North America. It seems the Mirage platform would be a good candidate for electric propulsion.

    If Mitsubishi had an electric version in mind during design, surely they had some parts ready to use?

    Hatchbacks. I like hatchbacks. Can't stop thinking about them.

    If they did, surely it would only be an offshoot/option of the ICE Mirage. Otherwise you are looking at Prius pricing, and losing a lot of the advantage of the current Mirage. Unless they feel they are going upmarket...
