2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV

Coming to Chapman Mitsubishi in Phoenix in the spring of 2014, The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is a subcompact electric car that offers a low price and an efficient drivetrain.

Though the i-MiEV is a very small vehicle, even the base model packs a respectable amount of standard features, including an energy-efficient electric air conditioning with micron filter, speed-sensitive electric power steering, a heated driver’s seat and LED rear tail lamps.

Stepping up to the mid-level SE model nets a bevy of upgrades including a 360-watt, eight-speaker sound system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, silver accents on the seats, a unique two-tone trim on the dashboard and the door panels, 15-inch alloy wheels and fog lamps with daytime running lights.

If you are looking for luxury, you will likely opt for the SE Premium package, which adds such niceties as a high-definition navigation system, a rear-view camera, a USB port and steering wheel-mounted controls. The quick charging port is also included in the package.

The i-MiEV is powered by an electric motor mounted under the trunk that sends 66 horsepower and 145 lb-ft. of instant torque to the rear wheels. Power is provided by a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery located under the chassis.

According to Edmunds, in ideal driving conditions the i-MiEV can go 62 miles on a single charge. It also offers three ways it can be charged: A standard 120V household outlet in22 hours, an optional 240V home charger in 7 hours, and  an optional quick charging level three system, similar to those you can find at some public charging stations will top off 80 percent of the battery in half an hour.

As for safety, standard features on every i-MiEV model include dual-stage supplemental front air bags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard passengers, Active Stability Control with Traction Control Logic, 4-wheel ABS with Electronic Brake force Distribution, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System and a high voltage cut-off system.
