With its 100 miles range and 80mph top speed, the i-MiEV police special is intended for community policing and urban patrol work rather than chasing villains down the M6.

In related news, Mitsubishi has also released details of the i-MiEV Cargo.

Mechanically identical to the standard car that Reg Hardware tested in July, the Cargo replaces the rear seats and boot with a 1.35 x 1.18 x 1.1m flat-floor load area.
