Mitsubishi i-MiEV
2017
Mitsubishi i-MiEV 2017 4-door hatchback Trim Shown: 2017 ES 4-door hatchback RWD Direct

The i-MiEV is one of the cheapest all-electric cars available. But the downside is an underdeveloped vehicle that is slow, clumsy, stiff-riding, and plebeian inside. It takes between 6 and 7 hours to charge on a 240-volt, Level 2 charger, or 21 hours on a standard 110-volt charger. Its range is EPA-rated at 62 miles, although we generally got around 59 miles. We measured its energy consumption at 111 mpg equivalent. The motor puts out a meager 66 hp. In comparison, the five-seat Nissan Leaf--with its roomier interior, more comfortable ride, and longer driving range--feels like a real car and is a far better choice.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Others

The i-MiEV, also known just as the i, is Mitsubishi's electric car. It uses a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery that takes between six and seven hours to charge on a 240-volt, Level 2 charger, or 21 hours on a standard 110-volt charger. Its range is EPA-rated at 62 miles, although we generally got 56 miles. We measured its energy consumption at 111 mpg equivalent. The motor puts out 63 hp. This is cheapest all-electric car available, but the tradeoff is it's slow, clumsy, stiff riding, and spartan inside.
