Model History and Safety Features
The tested model of Mitsubishi i-MiEV will be introduced in Australia during 2011. This rating applies to vehicles produced from 2011, when side airbags and side curtains became standard. Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), emergency brake assist (EBA) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to  all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce
slack in the event of a crash.

The i-MiEV scored 10.95 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious  chest and leg injury was  marginal for the driver. The electrical system passed new regulatory safety checks after the test. The vehicle scored 14.4 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver.
FRONTAL OFFSET CRASH TEST
Body region scores out of 4 points each:
Head/neck 4.pts,
chest 2.19 pts,
upper legs 2 pts,
lower legs 2.76 pts.
The offset crash test was conducted at JARI in Japan, under supervision of Japan NCAP. ANCAP personnel
attended the crash test and conducted the post-crash assessment. The passenger compartment held its shape well  in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by  98  mm and upwards  39  mm.  Some footwell panels separated. The steering wheel hub moved 9 mm rearward, 31 mm upward and 16 mm sideways. The front (“A”) pillar moved 66 mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be  fully opened with high manual effort. The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver’s knees. The passenger’s head was cushioned by the airbag. Dash components were a potential source of injury for the passenger’s knees.
SIDE IMPACT CRASH TEST
Body region scores out of 4 points each:
Head 4 pts,
chest 2.4 pts,
abdomen 4 pts,
pelvis 4 pts.
In 2009 Japan NCAP tested a petrol version of this model but it was not equipped with head-protecting side airbags and so the results do not apply to  Australian model. The NCAP  crash test is based on ECE Regulation 95 and ANCAP was provided with test data associated with a regulation crash test of  i-MiEV with side airbags and curtains. The test conditions were found to be consistent with the  Japan NCAP test and the injury data from the regulation test were used for this assessment.
PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION:  Pending
