Mitsubishi i-MiEV Overview

The i-MiEV is one of the cheapest all-electric cars available. But the tradeoff is that it's slow, clumsy, stiff-riding, and Spartan 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 56 miles. We measured its energy consumption at 111 mpg equivalent. The motor puts out a meager 63 hp. In comparison, the Nissan Leaf, with its seating for five, roomier interior, and more comfortable ride, feels like a real car and is a far better choice.
