Driving the i-Miev around San Francisco, I came to the conclusion that I could simulate the Eco mode merely by using a lighter foot on the accelerator and applying the brake pedal when coasting.

    Mitsubishi i-Miev review: Mitsubishi i-Miev - Roadshow

    When the Mitsubishi I-MiEV SE arrived at my house on a flatbed normal for any EV test driver—gotta conserve every drop of battery juice , my first thought was, "Hmm, looks like a giant purple bug.

    This oughtta turn some heads. With a lot of them being double takes. I guess the rounded, bubbly styling draws a lot of attention… either that or I don't look like the kind of guy who'd be rolling around in a tiny, raspberry colored car. Either way, I only had 3 days to test the I-MiEV, so I wanted to get as much wheel time as possible, no matter how many open-mouthed looks I got.

    Styling Even though the I-MiEV looks like someone washed a bus in hot water then put it in the dryer, the soft, rounded shape and smiling insect facia do grow on you after a while.

    And there's just enough "futuristic" in the design to signal this is not your typical vehicle. And like i mentioned earlier, it does attract attention. Inside, the I-MiEV is about as bare bones as vehicles come these days. There's nothing fancy in the interior at all—this is a car built to get you there and back efficiently, without a lot of fanfare and embellishment.

    My tester also came with the Premium Package, adding on a navi system with back up cam, steering wheel controls, heated side view mirrors and a quick-charge port more on that in a minute.

    Looking at the dash, you understand the definition of "simple. That's all, in three compact circles. The interior seating is comfortable enough, but you do get the idea Mitsubishi intends for you to drive the I-MiEV a few miles and get out. With a range of just over 60 miles, you're not expected to be in the seats long. There was something interesting I noticed in the rear seats: There's some sort of strange plastic piece running down the center.

    My guess is, since the I-MiEV is rated as a 4-passenger car, it's to keep you from squeezing a 5th passenger in there. I only had 3 days in the vehicle, and I did just over 50 miles, with the "fuel" gauge showing I had a little less than a quarter tank left. So I'm guessing I could have gotten close to the suggested 62 miles before running out of juice.

    And even though those miles were done in a vehicle designed for shorter trips, I was never uncomfortable in the I-MiEV. Would I have like a little more pampering? But it wasn't like I was rolling in a medieval torture device either. And the acceleration isn't what you'd call "peppy," but then this car wasn't built for speed. Had I run dangerously low on juice, there were two ports for me to choose from to recharge the vehicle: Not bad when you're running low and can't make it back home or to the office.

    Providing there are charging stations near you… but the industry is working on that. Overall The Mitsubishi I-MiEV is a capable vehicle that delivers what it promises, enough electric range to get you to work and home, without ever visiting a gas station again.
