Mitsubishi Motors will show the North American version of its i-MiEV plug-in electric vehicle at the Los Angeles auto show later this month.

The Japanese carmaker said the North American i-MiEV will be slightly bigger than the Japanese version. The model's greater size will "secure plenty of space for four adults and better meet the expectations of US consumers," Mitsubishi said in a statement.

The i-MiEV will come with tire pressure monitoring and active stability control as standard features.

The North American i-MiEV will be 3,680mm long (plus 285mm), 1,585mm wide (plus110mm) and 1,615mm high (plus 5mm).
