The Mitsubishi Lancer MIEV. 268hp, 0–62 mph in under 8 seconds, 112 mph top speed, four individual in-wheel electric motors driven by Lithium-Ion batteries. Not yer grandma’s eco vehicle, folks.
The in-wheel motors and the lithium-ion battery system, which is located under the floor to reduce the center of gravity, accelerate Lancer Evolution MIEV from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in less than 8 seconds and up to a maximum speed of 180 km/h. This is a level of motive performance that leaves today’s EV’s standing.
