When I told my dad what kind of car I have, I didn’t come right out and say it. Instead, I gave him hints and made him guess. On paper, you can make the i-MiEV sound like a race car!
- Wider tires in the back than in the front
- Rear-engine (motor!)
- Rear-wheel drive
- De-Dion rear suspension
- 9,900 RPM redline
- Does 81 MPH in first gear
My dad, a long-time car nut, did a very good job of guessing. He thought of the Mazda RX-8. Although it doesn’t have a De-Dion rear suspension or a rear-mounted engine, the Rotary engine does have a 9,000 RPM redline. Good guess!
