Looking like a cross between an old VW Beetle and a BMW Isetta, Mitsubishi's i MiEV Sport Concept packs cutting edge technology into the perfect urban dweller's micro car. Powered by two small electric motors in each front wheel, the MiEV emits no emissions. Ingenious methods for capturing and storing electricity go beyond regenerative braking, employing roof-mounted solar panels, front grille wind turbine fans and a microwave wireless charging system. The i MiEV is also smart, with a home interface that can preset charging and air conditioning, update the navigation and check e-mail.
