2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV User Reviews
- Not Available
- No trim specified for this review
- High efficiency; a lot of room for passengers for a car this size; drives like a real car!
- Odd appearance; a bit thin on creature comforts
Purchased As New
If you're researching this vehicle on the Internet, you'll find very polarized reviews. Some people hate the 65 mile range, others like me don't drive that far so the range is adequate. Some people hate the appearance, others like the cute face. Some people hate the size of the vehicle, others say it's adequate for what they need.
The only answer to how you will enjoy this car is to give it a drive. Can you deal without having leather seats and soft-touch interior materials? If you can, there are plenty of other bells and whistles available: Navigation, back-up camera, remote pre-heating/cooling of the cabin, 10-speaker stereo with iPod/iPhone integration, Bluetooth, etc.
While you're gasping at the sticker price for such a small car, remember that you're buying a $15K car with a $15K battery. Until battery price drops and technology improves, a $30K EV will always have some sacrifices.
Those sacrifices become worth it once you start living with an EV: Not having to stand out in the wind and rain to fill up your gas tank, especially when you're already late for work. Not having to get a yearly emissions inspection. Not having to get your oil changed. Not having to raise your voice over your noisy engine when taking a phone call (on hands-free, of course).
