An I-MiEV in Parade Magazine

Sun Apr 19, 2020 1:25 pm

If any of you Americans still get a Sunday paper, page 6 of today’s Earth Day commemoration in Parade features a blurb which reads “ They’re driving electric cars to reduce air pollution in New Jersey. Learn about electric cars at energy.gov.” Of course the photo they used is of a Euro-spec triplet at a Euro charging station, with the slender license plate blurred out!

I checked my paper and sure enough, it's a white one!

I see that so often, I think the news outfits must have it filed under stock footage of EVs, ever since 2010 or so.

I see it more than I ever saw i-MiEVs in real life in the U.S., besides my own.

Amazing.
Of all the electric cars on the market that could have been in the article and there was our humble IMEV.
I was thrilled to see our car. I wonder how many in the general public saw the picture and wondered, "what is that"?.
