Mitsubishi##Q##s i-MiEV is known for many accomplishments in the electric car world, but long-range driving and staggeringly good looks aren##Q##t among them. Its just-unveiled Concept CA-MiEV solves the former by making at least a token gesture towards the latter. The combination of flat-packed, high-density 28kWh lithium-ion batteries and a sleeker, low-drag shape help the compact car last for 186 miles on a charge, or exactly three times what the i-MiEV could muster. It##Q##s enough that Mitsubishi describes the concept as a “suburban” EV that could last for a week of typical European commuting on one charge. As it##Q##s a showfloor darling, the Concept CA-MiEV naturally stuffs in a lot of technology that##Q##s only sometimes related to the battery: it can charge wirelessly using WiTricity##Q##s magnetic resonance, takes data from smartphones and will email the owner if it##Q##s stolen. Mitsubishi is quick to warn that the car isn##Q##t intended for production, like most concepts, but many of the developments found inside should spread to the automaker##Q##s worldwide fleet in the long run.
