2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV

Pros: Affordable purchase price (especially after government tax credits) and low cost of ownership; lower maintenance costs than a comparable gas-engine car; close-quarters maneuverability

Cons: Sluggish acceleration and limited top speed; limited driving range; limited interior space; relatively long recharge time

2014 i-MiEV

CG Says: The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV receives a substantial starting price cut (to $22,995), and gets several features as standard equipment, including a Level 3 quick-charge port, heated front passenger seat (a heated driver seat was already standard), heated side mirrors, leather-covered steering wheel and shift knob, aluminum wheels, and front fog lights. As with any current electric car, the i-MiEV should only be considered if you can live with its limited driving range between charges; in this case, about 62 miles according to the EPA. If you can, the i-MiEV comes across as a transportation bargain. Small size, terrific maneuverability, and exceptionally low per-mile costs make it perfectly suited to inner-city driving, and the reduced starting price is compelling as well. On the down side, there’s limited passenger room (the Nissan Leaf is more spacious), performance could be better (the Leaf is a bit quicker), and it may not be available in your area. But if it suits your needs, the i-MiEV strikes us as a practical city car and a great way to “go electric.”
