You are about 80 miles or so from me. We could drive past each other in Waldorf which is about halfway, Lol!

Saw a white i-Miev this afternoon and chatted with the owner, Michael, who has enjoyed the car as much as we do. It's a 2012 ES. He is not a member, so we emailed him the forum link.

Rather than "witnessing", we were "witnessed" by TEVA member "EVJerry" Asher (a Leaf owner) who was kind enough to introduce himself to us (me, my wife and kids) while we were charging at the Ikea Blink station in Tempe. He passed on another TEVA contact, i-Miev member Benjamin Nead and asked us to contact him. He was rather surprised that we already knew him from this forum!

In any event, best regards to Benjamin from us and EVJerry!

Benjamin, please let him know that we "made contact". :D

Went shopping at Festival Foods in Janesville, WI this afternoon. Imagine my surprise to be charging next to another white i-Miev! It had the blue decals... the owner, Dan and his wife, Connie and I had quite a long talk.
They were not aware of this forum, so I gave him the info. By the way he has 48000 miles and hasn't noticed any range degradation. It was a 2012 SE with all the bells and whistles like mine. They were not aware of EVSE upgrade either. Hopefully they will find this site...awesome to see another i-Miev in the wild!

Not sure if it counts, but at the NDEW event I met and chatted with another i-MiEV owner. He had a white ES like mine. I let him know about this forum, but not sure if he'll join.

He apparently has mistaken the blue/white SE I spotted before as me (noting that I don't have plug decals on the side of Bear, and Koorz has never been north of Pittsburgh).

This makes 3 other i-MiEVs I'm aware of in my area (2 white and a blue/white, but as far as I can tell, I still own the only two i-MiEVs in my county :lol: ).

(Never did hear from the driver of the blue/white SE I left my card on.)

Saw my first "in the wild" ImiEV in Toronto on Bathurst St. between Lawrence and Wilson during a bad winter storm.

We waved in passing. His car was white as is mine. It would have been nice if it had been possible to stop and chat.

I spotted a 3rd white i-MiEV in Cranberry yesterday while on a drive in the Bolt.

Together with a Black SE I spotted a couple months ago, this makes 5 other i-MiEVs that I know of in the Pittsburgh area.

3 white
1 white/blue
1 black

Ever see a couple of grownups in a Tesla go berserk? There we were yesterday, pulling out of the Tesla Supercharger in the town of Mount Shasta way up in Northern California, when a white/blue i-MiEV rolls by! What an unlikely place for an i-MiEV, as the closest larger town is Yreka (about 35 miles away but has no charging stations), and this is way up in the Siskiyou mountain region below beautiful Mount Shasta - not what you might call an urban environment. Checking PlugShare, I see that the town's medical center has four J1772 outlets, but that's it for public charging until you go 75 miles up and over the mountains into Ashland, Oregon, or back down the hill 60 miles into Redding. We debated chasing the i-MiEV, but figured we might be mistaken for crazed flatlanders. Anyway, an i-MiEV sighting in a most unlikely spot. :!:

Coming out of Montreal today, heading East on the Trans-Canada highway, passed a white i-MiEV with "100% Électrique" stickers front and back.

Ran into a white i-MIEV while charging at IKEA in Toronto. We chatted a bit and even got some tips while waiting for my charge to finish.
