Compared with the Japanese and European-spec i-MiEVs, the North American model has an enhanced, enlarged body structure that offer ample space for four passengers, better meeting the expectations of U.S. consumers. The front and rear bumpers are also new.

The standard safety equipment includes airbags that detect passengers and control deployment force, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and Active Stability Control (ASC).

The interior is characterized by a two-tone color scheme and by a new redesigned center console.
