Mitsubishi i MiEV Electric Car Ready to Roll

Posted 08.21.2009 in News by Christopher

i MiEV (Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle) is a battery electric car that Mitsubishi announced it would start producing a year sooner than originally planned. Two thousand i MiEVs will be made in the first production run.  The four-door iMiEV will travel 80 miles on a full charge. Mitsubishi began selling the car in Japan to fleet customers in mid-2009 and to the general public in 2010. The car costs between $25,000 and $30,000 in Japan, or up to $7,000 more than its high-mileage, gas-powered counterpart, the i minicar. The i MiEV has a top speed of 81 mph and a range of 81 miles to 99 miles, depending on which of two battery packs are ordered.
