Mitsubishi’s electric egg memorable
Let’s start with this car’s name. It’s the Mitsubishi i, the company’s first mass-produced electric automobile. In the rest of the world, it’s known as the i-MiEV, which stands for Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Car. Neither name is memorable, but at least the second one makes sense in an unpoetic, corporate-speak way.
By contrast, the car’s egg-like shape is wonderfully odd. What a shame that such memorable styling was saddled with an unimaginative name. But its ovoid shape is merely reinforces its most distinctive trait: It’s an all-electric car, one of a handful on the market.
This four-door, four-passenger subcompact is tiny, measuring just over 12 feet long. Its short but tall body feels roomier than it really is, thanks to its large windows and tall roof. Legroom is acceptable for taller drivers, but still somewhat cramped.
