MiEV OS, THE BRAINS BEHIND THE i-MiEV

MiEV OS, THE BRAINS
BEHIND THE i-MiEV

The next-generation of electric vehicle management has a name: the MiEV OS (Operating System). By performing vital tasks such as monitoring battery status and energy recovery from the regenerative brake function, and ensuring smooth and powerful driving, the MiEV OS enhances safety, comfort and energy efficiency. The i-MiEV was given the Most Advanced Technology” award at the “2009 - 2010 Car of the Year Japan” final judging.

REGENERATE POWER WHILE YOU BRAKE

REGENERATE POWER
WHILE YOU BRAKE

The regenerative brake function begins the moment you take your foot off the accelerator pedal, storing kinetic energy in the traction battery. The amount of energy stored depends on deceleration, which is determined by the shift position. In addition, when you depress the brake pedal, regenerative brake power is increased. The regenerative brake function is effective for increasing the driving range.

ASC WITH TCL KEEPS THE i-MiEV IN LINE

ASC WITH TCL KEEPS
THE i-MiEV IN LINE

When steering suddenly to avoid an obstacle, the MiEV OS-controlled Active Stability Control (ASC) increases stability. In slippery conditions, the TCL (Traction Control) system restrains traction slip to improve acceleration stability.

Note: The control capabilities of ASC/TCL are supplemental only. Please drive safely and never rely solely on these functions while driving. Be sure to use the same specified type and size of tyres on all 4 wheels. Do not install any aftermarket limited slip differential on your vehicle. Please see the owner’s manual for additional information.

2-WAY CHARGING SYSTEM

Equipped with a regular connection for a full charge in 8 hours from electrical outlets and a quick-charging connection for an 80% full charge in 30 minutes at quick-charge stations, powering up the i-MiEV at home or around town is as simple as plugging in.
AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM

Air conditioning system is available* during quick/regular charging if the electric motor switch (ignition switch) is turned to “ACC” position.
• When you turn the power switch on, the air conditioning and electric charging stops. If you start charging again, rebilling for electricity may be required (during paid charging).
• After air conditioning or electric charging stops, if the power switch remains set to ACC, the battery for the auxiliary may run out.
• Because electric power is consumed for air conditioning during electric charging, it takes more time to complete charging.
• Because air conditioning is operated using electric power supplied by rapid charging or normal charging, air conditioning performance is limited compared to when used while driving.


* This function is not activated when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. To activate this function, please consult your local Mitsubishi dealer/distributor for more detailed information.

8 HOURS TO FULL
Regular charging time with AC 230V 10A from Low Energy Warning Indicator flashing, may differ by region.
80% FULL IN 30 MINUTES
Quick charging time with max. 50 kW, may differ depending on conditions such as outside temperature.

POWEFUL, SMOOTH RUNNING

The lightweight permanent magnet synchronous motor combines high efficiency with surprisingly strong and linear acceleration for easy passing power, while rear wheel drive increases handling performance. Producing a maximum 196 N-m of improved torque that even makes uphill climb a breeze and boasting a top speed of 130 km/h, the i-MiEV is never slow to respond to your command.

PLUG IN, GO FURTHER

On a full charge, the i-MiEV has a cruising range of 160 km – perfect for commuting and running errands around town.

*Measured by NEDC, New European Driving Cycle. Range may
vary according to driving style, road conditions and use of
airconditioning or heater, etc.

DRIVE POSITION

OPTIMISED SHIFT POSITIONS

Choose between the D-position for city driving, giving you standard regenerative braking power, the B-position for downhill driving, giving you higher regenerative braking power, and the C-position for comfortable driving in the suburbs, giving you lower regenerative braking power. Regardless of shift position, battery recharging begins as soon as you release the accelerator or apply brake pressure to increase driving range.

CRUISE IN SAFETY

More than just a showcase of environmental responsibility and driving pleasure, the i-MiEV also offers a number of safety features for greater peace of mind and a confident cruise.
IMPACT PROTECTION
A total of six SRS airbags help protect the driver
and passengers in the event of a collision.

Note: Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seat belt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat. Please see the owner’s manual and the instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.



RISE BODY CONSTRUCTION
Mitsubishi’s exclusive RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction absorbs impact while providing a rigid occupant cell during a collision.

ADVANCED SAFETY FOR BATTERY
The i-MiEV’s batteries are placed in a waterproof batterypack that is located inside the body frame and enclosed in a well-crib frame to protect against impact damage from any direction.

Note: Battery pack shown is for RHD markets.

VISUALISE A SMARTER RIDE

All you need to know is right there on the combination meter panel: the energy level gauge on the left displays the shift position and informs you when the battery needs to be charged, while the cruising range indicator on the right displays the odometer, tripmeters, service reminders and other helpful information.
Illuminated for explanation purposes.
POWER DOWN WARNING LAMP
When the battery power is near zero, the power down warning lamp illuminates to alert you.
To save energy, the blower fan will continue, but the A/C will stop automatically.



ENERGY LEVEL GAUGE WITH LOW ENERGY WARNING INDICATOR
When the battery only has 1/8 of its charge remaining, the low energy warning indicator flashes to let you know the battery needs to be recharged.




ECO AND CHARGE ZONES
Maintaining driving speed in the ECO Zone will help increase driving distance.

While in the Charge Zone, the indicator informs you
that the battery is being charged.






REGENERATIVE BRAKE FORCE WARNING LAMP
When regenerative brake force have declined, the indicator is blinking.

MiEV REMOTE SYSTEM

With MiEV Remote System, the remote climate control* can be pre-activated to prepare a comfortable interior environment while saving electricity for the drive.
A programmable timer charging* also lets drivers schedule charging times for the most economical hours. A built-in display also shows remaining vehicle battery charge.

Note: Display shown may differ from actual usage.
REMOTE CLIMATE CONTROL*
The air conditioner can be started & stopped via the remote control with EV Remote. By activating air conditioner before driving, you can set a comfortable interior temperature before getting in, saving electricity for driving range. Selectable A/C modes are COOL, HOT, DEF, A/C OFF. With DEF, the rear defogger is also activated.

TIMER CHARGING*
Users can choose when to charge i-MiEV (ex: to get cheaper electricity rates late at night). There are two charging timers.
ON timer: To start charging in 0 – 19.5 hours
OFF timer: To stop charging in 0 – 19.5 hours, or when fully-charged
(the ‘-‘ setting)

TRACTION BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR
Users can check the charge level of the vehicle battery.

*: Only activates when Regular Charging Cable is connected.

ACOUSTIC VEHICLE ALERTING SYSTEM (AVAS)

ACOUSTIC VEHICLE ALERTING
SYSTEM (AVAS)

Because i-MiEV normally is almost silent, AVAS creates a sound to inform pedestrians when the vehicle is approaching. The system will sound whether driving in forward or reverse, using input from the speed sensors, brake switch and gear selector. AVAS includes an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting Speaker and an AVAS pause switch.

Note: Equipment may vary by market. Please consult your local Mitsubishi Motors dealer/distributor for details.
