Mitsubishi i-MiEV Review

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. What “myriad” plug-in options is the author talking about? In my neck of the woods, there are exactly three plug-ins available to drive off the lot – the Leaf, the Volt, and the i. The i is a throwback to “a time past; 10 years ago”? What EVs could you buy (not experimentally lease) 10 years ago?? Again, what the heck is the author talking about?

    Unless you think a car’s purpose is to carry around a bunch of overpriced tech toys that can be over-matched by a mid-market smartphone, I’d say the i does what a car is supposed to do – it allows a driver to safely and efficiently move passengers and/or cargo from A to B, providing a reasonably enjoyable driving experience along the way. The level of comfort and convenience on offer is more than sufficient for the car’s limited range. Since the Leaf has only slightly more range, it’s fair to ask exactly what you’re paying the extra $6-7k for (and that is NOT a similar price point).

    For buyers seeking the driving experience, operating economy, and low maintenance of an EV, the i provides all that for a down-to-earth price. If you value the superior appointments and gadgetry of Nissan’s Leaf, there’s nothing wrong with paying for them, but it’s silly to suggest that a car aiming to be more efficient and more cost-effective isn’t worth making.
