Mitsubishi unveils next generation compact electric car

Japanese car maker Mitsubishi has announced their next all electric vehicle called the i MiEV SPORT AIR. Looking something like a cross between a Volkswagon and a bullet, the futuristic vehicle will run on a 63horsepower (46kilawatt) electric motor powered by 330-volt lithium ion batteries. Next to the Tesla, this could be the coolest electrical vehicle design we've seen yet. Scheduled to hit the streets in 2010, the i MiEV will have a driving range of 100 miles on just one seven hour charge from a common household electrical outlet.
