Scott O’Neal, Co-Founder & COO of EVCARCO, stated, "Our acquisition plan announced publicly on April 14, 2011 was to evaluate and acquire dealerships and align the Company with major manufacturers that produce vehicles consumers want to drive. One of the manufacturers we are considering is Mitsubishi and its electric vehicle, MiEV, as seen in the Dallas and Fort Worth Auto Shows."
The i, or MiEV, is powered by Mitsubishi’s innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology. The electric motor can go from zero to 60 in under 9 seconds. The rear-wheel drive vehicle has a 49kW (66 bhp) AC synchronous electric motor; an 88 cell, 330 V lithium-ion battery pack for peak storage of 16 kWh; an onboard charger and a single fixed reduction gear transmission. The electric motor is capable of producing a peak torque of 145 lb. ft. almost instantaneously when accelerating from a standstill. It can reach up to 80 miles per hour.
