Mitsubishi iMiEV Will Be Cheapest EV in U.S.

26/04/2011

The popular Japanese EV, the Mitusbishi iMiEV, is finally coming to the U.S. next January and at $27,990 before incentives, it will be the cheapest plug-in car on the market.

The tiny all-electric will be eligible for some major incentives:  a $7,500 Federal tax credit, thousands more in state credits (California offers $5,000, Colorado $6,000, etc.), regional and local credits like the $3,000 rebate for residents of the San Joaquin Valley and some companies like Sony Pictures are offering up another $5,000 to employees.

In fact, if you are among the handful of Sony Pictures employees who reside in the San Joaquin Valley, you can get the iMiEV for about $8,000 after all the incentives are cashed in.  Pretty incredible.

Even if you’re not among that small group, you can expect to take at least $10,000 off the top, which puts this car in the range of something like the Honda Fit. For an additional $2,790, it comes with a DC fast-charge port that delivers an 80 percent battery charge in only 30 minutes.

Interested buyers can register to pre-order the vehicle starting today.

    Nice attempt and certainly an interesting proposal. Generally speaking, what is the potential of such small EV cars however?
