2016 MITSUBISHI I-MIEV
The Mitsubishi i-Miev ES is a 100% electric car, so it requires no gas and has zero tailpipe emissions. Its equipped with an 1-Speed Direct Drive transmission and an AC synchronous permanent magnetic motor that generates about 66-horsepower. At a base MSRP of $22,995, the Mistubishi i-Miev ES is one of the most affordable fully-electric cars on the market.
Built for the city
The official EPA estimated range of the Mitsubishi i-Miev is 62 miles. And unlike other cars, the i-Miev is actually more fuel-efficient in city driving. The best way to maximize the Mitsubishi i-Miev’s range is by keeping low-speeds with frequent stops and gets an average of 112 miles per gallon in these conditions. The car’s battery life is more-quickly depleted when traveling at a consistent speed. Additionally, the i-Miev’s ease of parking and great turning ratio makes it a great urban vehicle.
According to Mitsubishi, the car’s standard charge time is 14 hours on a 12-amp 120-volt circuit, and 7 hours when drivers use a 15-amp charging station. The i-MiEV has a public quick-charge port that connects to CHAdeMO Level 3 public chargers — with this hookup the car can get an 80% charge in about 30 minutes.
INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR
The i-Miev is a 4-passenger subcompact car. The two front seats are heated and a 100-watt AM/FM/CD /MP3-compatible audio system. There is approximately 13.2 cubic-feet of space behind the back seats. This space is suited for a set of golf clubs or a standard size suitcase. If the rear Mitsubishi i-Miev available at University Mitsubishi seats are folded down cargo space increases to 50.4 cubic-feet.
The Mitsubishi i-Miev offers a quiet cabin for the driver and the passengers. Hard accelerations will produce an electric motor kick, but for the most part the cabin is quiet enough for casual conversation. Wind and tire noise increase as speed increases on the highway.
The 2-door i-Miev has halogen headlights and fog lights and LED taillights. Its exterior mirrors are heated and the small car rides on 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels. The i-Miev comes in four-different colors.
The iMiev is a great car for buyers who want to decide what various features they do or don’t want.
