Description

The Mitsubishi i has a rear-midship engine layout and an automatic transmission. This, in conjunction with the very long wheelbase (2.55m) and one box design by Olivier Boulay, leads to a very roomy passenger compartment compared to its competitors. An automatic transmission is an automobile gearbox that can change gear ratios automatically as the car or truck moves, thus freeing the driver from having to shift gears manually. ... In both road and rail vehicles, the wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. ... The metre, or meter (symbol: m) is the SI base unit of length. ...
