The Mitsubishi i MiEV Evo at MOD 2012

Mitsubishi Owners Day MOD 2012

Mitsubishi has forged a serious reputation over the years with its sports cars, coupe and sedans. MOD2012 was a reminder of the loyal following the company has.

The strangest thing you wonder as an electric car writer when going to a car event is what will it be like and will there be electric cars, EVs. If MOD2012 is any indication of the company’s enthusiastic following, then the success was obvious. Cars lined up starting at 4:45 am just to have the perfect spot. Yes, Californian’s are hardcore when it comes to waking up early and cars.

From Small To Big. While Mitsubishi’s excellent urban all-electric i MiEV was there, the company does have other cars that are noteworthy. Its new Outlander and Lancer lines sport impressive performance and greener emission than cars from a few years ago. Mitsubishi has done a great deal to make sure you and the environment were heard by lowering its emission substantially. Essentially the company offers from the small electric i MiEV all the way up to the Outlander crossover, making sure anyone can find what they are looking for.

Soup Up My Ride. In a sea of souped up cars, it was hard to make out the ever-so subtle differences between one job from another. Mitsubishi had made available a dyno where faithful fans were able to test how much ponies they tweaked out of their modified production cars. Some cars were highly modified, while others had modest tweaks. A rough estimate of how many people showed up would put it at around 1,000 with varying styles and levels of performance.
