The Mitsubishi i 100% Electric Experience: Take a test drive!

Last Updated on

My truck is on it’s last legs…or, should I say wheels? Anyway, I am hoping for another year out of it so that I can finish paying off the car we had to buy 2 years ago! We went for 10 years with no car payments, I don’t want to deal with TWO!

I have decided to spend a little time researching my options before buying our next car. I would love to find a reliable, ecofriendly option and there are so many new models entering the market lately. I recently received some information about the Mitsubishi i Electric car and honestly, don’t you just think it looks cool? Because, really, if I am going to be driving around town, I want to look good while I help save the planet, right?

According to the Mitsubishi i website, this is the most affordable electric vehicle in the entire United States! There are a ton of federal and state tax incentives out there right now, too, which makes this a great time to buy an electric car! So, here are a few statistics about the MiEV (as it is being called!).

  • Spacious Interior:  seats four with lots of leg and headroom
  • Three Drive Modes:  Choose between maximum fun, maximum economy and maximum regenerative brake power.
  • MiEV Remote Control:  Pre-heat or pre-cool the cabin and set your preferred charging time from a distance.
  • Rear-Wheel Drive:  Improves handling and increases cabin space without sacrificing performance.
  • Available HDD Navigation:  Enjoy Real-Time Traffic, Diamond Lane Guidance, turn-by-turn directions and a rearview camera.
  • Regenerative Brakes:  A clever braking system automatically reclaims the energy from deceleration and charges the battery.

The Mitsubishi i is 100% electric so it will never burn a drop of gasoline or emit one single molecule of exhaust gas from its tailpipe…it doesn’t even HAVE a tailpipe! How cool is that? You will average about 62 miles per charge with this car. You have the option of charging from home, on the go at an appropriate public charging station or there is even a portable system that allows you to charge from any plug…this option isn’t as quick as the others but it is good to know you have it in case of emergencies!

So, you’re thinking this is a great sounding car, aren’t you? If you want to check this car out in person, you have a couple of options! You can find a dealer in your area using their dealer locator. Or, if you live in the Pacific Northwest or California, you are in luck because the Mitsubishi i is going on tour in your area!

From October through November the tour will set up in cities across the Pacific Northwest and California including, but not limited to:
  • Portland, OR
  • Seattle, WA
  • Carmel, CA
  • Monterey, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Bakersfield, CA
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • San Diego, CA
  • More cities and information will be added as tour progresses
Too bad I am stuck here in Atlanta! I would love to check this out! If you want to learn more about this car, check out the Mitsubishi i FAQ. It will answer a ton of questions you may have about safety, features, and environmental impact.
With the cost of gasoline nowadays, finding a car that doesn’t use a single DROP of gasoline sounds like a good investment to me!

  1. How cool! I love the way it looks!

  2. It’s very “space-age-ish”. How cool!

  3. Very cool! I can’t see too many texans giving up their big cars for one, but I think they’ll find a very receptive market in Southern California.

  4. Mitsubishi i says

    Thank you for the informative article, Diane!

  5. I wish there were places to plug in your car at fast food places and stores! Hopefully in the future there will be!

  6. Very cool! And hey, I live not too far from one of the tour stops!

  7. Mom vs. the boys says
