Knock knock. Who's there? The 2012 Mitsubishi i EV that's who...or "what" rather. After building up mounds of anticipation and a flurry of marketing campaigns, Mitsubishi has finally sold the revolutionary, new EV model to its first United States consumers.
Where, oh where, are those lucky consumers from? West-coast towns across California, Oregon and Washington. These three states represent the first in the continental U.S. to receive the Mitsubishi i and are second only to Hawaii in the entire country. Now, there's no hiding it. Anaheim Mitsubishi is certainly a tad envious of its fellow western Mitsubishi lovers. However, the west-coast rollout will be followed shortly by northeastern states in April. By the time summer comes around, dealerships all across the country will hold the new EV on their lots. We suppose we can wait. But the real question is: Can you?
In order to tide you over while the innovative model makes its way across our market, here are the 1, 2, 3's of the 2012 Mitsubishi i EV:- One: the ranking it holds against competitors in the area of fuel economy
- Two: the number of harmful vehicle by-products it completely eliminates (exhaust fumes and CO2)
- Three: the dollars per gallon (or more) you won't be spending at the gas pump
Oh, and here's another number to consider: $21,625. It's the starting price tag that makes the Mitsubishi i the most affordable mainstream EV in America. Perhaps not the only one though. A recent press release hinted that the Mitsubishi i is the "first of several new advanced, alternative-fuel production vehicles that the Japanese auto manufacturer plans on bringing to the North American market in the next few years."1
