Driven: Mitsubishi i-MiEV is serious electric car contender

Today we wrapped up our first drive of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car. The first such entry from the brand we don’t hear about much is likely to change all that. The i-MiEV is a solid and competitive contender in a growing market of electric cars that makes its mark solidly.

To wit, the i-MiEV is the least expensive EV on the market right now, starting at $29,125. After the $7,500 federal tax incentive, that comes down to a downright reasonable $21,625. Some states offer up to $5,500 in local tax incentives that could bring that price into the mid teens.

Like Chevrolet with the Volt extended-range electric, Mitsubishi is also offering a tantalizing lease program that starts at $221 a month for qualified buyers. One of the things allowing for this price is that the i-MiEV is the smallest EV on the market. It measures just 144” in length, about 2” shorter than a a Mini Cooper.
