Tokyo Preview: Mitsubishi i MiEV Sport

Comments Add

Our team hasn’t even arrived in Frankfurt yet and news is already starting to trickle out about the next big show on the circuit. The Tokyo Motor Show is coming up in October and Mitsubishi has let out some information about their debuts. One of the premieres will be a battery-powered 2+2 coupe dubbed the i MiEV Sport.

The fastback exterior design expresses the quickness of the car with an appearance that is pleasing and lively. An efficient, environmentally friendly electric vehicle thanks to its compact size, it also possesses exceptionally fluid styling. A simplified interior styling creates a pleasant space, allowing occupants to feel at home. Geometry, metallic materials and body epitomize the futuristic electric vehicle.

Interior lighting, too, has been carefully thought out, with the use of many blue LEDs suggestive of nature, creating a sophisticated, cutting-edge atmosphere.

i-Miev is totally cool for me.

Why argue on the speed? For the basic sense, this is a battery-powered car so we shouldn’t expect a lot in terms of speed. Let’s give it some time (not just for Mitsu) for car manufacturers to develop and come-up with high-end technology with regards to speed and power efficienty.

We will come to that point sooner or later I suppose.

I like the idea. I do believe that a properly configured air ram system can be created to generate power. I am not buying the line that it can’t be done.

There are very simple and some not so simple ways to reduce drag while producing power.

I have a Gas Turbine engineering background and while I never did well in the math part, I do fully understand the mechanics behind turbine systems. And I have seen then operate well outside of what they are supposed to. based on the laws of physics.

How does that apply? Simple, a wind turbine is nothing more than a gas turbine minus the compressor and gas section. By using variable vanes to reduce drag at higher speeds it is possible to maintain relative RPM’s for power generation.

Also by using ducting and several venturi principles drag can be further reduced.

Now is it possible to sustain a vehicle indefinitely? Unknown at this time. Keep in mind many laws of physics and mechanics as well as electronics have been re-written as technology improved and changed their validity.

But is is possible with the technology we have NOW to create vehicles that are capable of over 300 miles on a single charge by using a slick combination of light weight materials, aerodynamic body design, high efficiency motors coupled with carbon nano-tube batteries (new technology that increases the energy density while reducing weight. I just read about them 6 months ago), and a properly ducted and designed in line wind turbine system.

I can’t stand being told I can’t do something when I know it can be done. Problem is I don’t have the $$$ to prove my theory. Otherwise I would put my money where my mouth is. Food for thought:

Those who allow themselves to be constrained by a defined method of thought will never be able to move ahead, they will be perpetually held back by their lack of vision and beliefs.

History is full of people that said, no! And moved on with their visions.
