Ahead of the Paris Motor Show, Mitsubishi has released new information about the Euro-spec i-MiEV.

Virtually identical to the Japanese version, the Euro i-MiEV will feature revised bumpers, a modified center stack, and "improved interior comfort." To enhance occupant safety, the company added Active Stability Control (ASC) and side / curtain airbags.

As we have previously reported, the EV features a lithium-ion battery which powers a small electric motor with 47 kW (63 hp / 64 PS) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque. This setup enables the car to have a range of 160 km (100 miles).

On sale in December, the i-MiEV will be launched in 14 countries including France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Pricing will range from €33,000 - €35,000 (or equivalent), but government incentives will lower it to €30,000 in most nations.
