Mitsubishi i-MiEV

Hybrid cars are something fashionable lately. There is an entire movement of creating eco-friendly cars, coming from the most important car manufacturers. The reasons why interest in these vehicles convinces even the biggest brands to enter the trend are not few. Mitsubishi, one of the most respectable and innovative brands in the world, seems very stick to the idea of hybrid cars. The company has just introduced an updated Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV will cost $6,130 less than its predecessor. It looks quite similar with the previous model. It features new daytime running lights, front fog lights and updated aluminum wheels. The inside of the vehicle has also been updated. It received a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats and many decorative color/trim upgrades.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV received a battery warming system and a CHAdeMO DC quick charge port. The small car also has a Level 1 charging cable that allows the battery to be recharged in approximately 14 hours (12 amp) or 22 hours (8 amp). So the MiEV also has the advantage of being friendly to the environment. Pricing begins at $22,995 but in fact that drops to $15,495 after factoring in the U.S. EV federal tax credit of $7,500. The i-MiEV has proven to be a safe, convenient and utterly reliable eco-friendly form of personal transportation in any market in which it is sold.
