Designed to inhabit cityscapes, the i-MiEV's 62-mile range3 is ideal for most commuters, featuring 3 drive modes (performance, efficiency or regenerative braking) to give you custom performance for your unique life and driving style. Along with responsive handling and a tight turning radius, it's easy to see how this urban dweller has become a true citizen of the globe.
With an EPA-rated 112 miles per gallon equivalent, it's no wonder the i-MiEV was named "The Greenest Vehicle of 2012" by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. When you can drive for around 3.6 cents per mile6, you're behind the wheel of one of the most efficient electric cars on planet Earth.
So go ahead-drive, save, smile.
The 100% electric i-MiEV produces zero emissions, has no tailpipe, and makes no sound. So all you hear as you drive clean and green down the road to a brighter future, is whatever you want. Cheering optional.
On the go, or at home, there is nothing quite like the feeling of filling your car up on electric energy instead of gasoline. The i-MiEV offers 3 ways to charge: standard cable (22.5 hours), EVSE home dock (7 hours) and the ultra-fast public CHAdeMO quick-charger port (30 minutes to 80%). Smile as you zip by and bid a fond farewell to filling stations.
For over 40 years, Mitsubishi has been leading the charge in electric vehicle innovation, and the i-MiEV is the culmination of all their pioneering work. The custom made Lithium-ion battery packs are safely mounted to the RISE-chassis body, feature two cooling systems and are warrantied for 8 years or 100,000 miles1. The time for a better electric car battery is now, and you can find it under the i-MiEV.
To get you ready for gas independence, there are just a few things we need to check. Fortunately we've partnered with AeroVironment and UPA/Eaton to offer convenient home inspections to make sure your electrical system is ready for the i-MiEV and its charging station. We can also determine whether your home can be equipped with the EVSE dock, for fast energy that's all yours.
Every last detail on an i-MiEV is designed for maximum efficiency, from its verdant engineering to its expressive styling. LED tail lamps, regenerative brakes, a lightweight bodyframe and a nonexistent tailpipe all contribute to making sure that every amp, every watt, every volt are accounted for, and used with purpose.
The i-MiEV isn't just about saving the planet, it's every bit as much about saving its owner thousands of dollars. From the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit2 to every dollar you'll save without gasoline, oil changes, transmission overhauls or combustion-engine specific maintenance, these are just a few reasons the i-MiEV is one of the most affordable electric vehicles in America.
When you drive the vehicle of the future, you should definitely be able to drive that vehicle in the future which is why we gave the i-MiEV its advanced 6-airbag5 safety system. We've got you covered from head to toe, or rather, roof to floor, so you can rest easy that you'll drive safely.
The i-MiEV comes equipped with an impressive array of safety features. From Active Stability Control7 to the available rearview camera to the Approaching Vehicle Alert System, which helps make the stealthy i-MiEV a little bit less so. Of course, we think it's impossible to ignore all on it's own.
From one of the best EV's on the planet comes an equally great limited battery warranty. 8 years or 100,000 miles. That's 96 months. Not only will you blow past gas stations, you'll leave trends, birthdays, and entire presidential administrations in the dust. With a warranty like this, the i-MiEV makes for the ultimate hand-me-down.
