Just got back from a trip to Iceland last week, while there spotted 2 different i-Mievs on the road. They have 100 percent renewable electricity with hydro, geo-thermal and wind.....

Had not seen one in the wild for a couple years.

Saw a blue i-MiEV at W&J College last night :D . I'd like to know how they got a 2014/2016 i-MiEV in this area. I don't know of any dealers that re-stocked after selling their 2012 inventory.

I saw one this morning parked in front of my house in Media, PA. I got in it and drove it to work. It's really cool.

Saw this iMiev pic today in a Cleantechnica article on Ecotricity charging and wondered if it belonged to a forum member?

Haven't seen the blue I-MiEV in town lately, although I did discover a silver I-MiEV that the owner works down the street from me. Been trying to get his attention and have him stop by on his way through.

There is another i-MiEV floating around Los Altos Hills: black with one wide green stripe. Wife saw it again yesterday on Altamont Road. Anyone here? That would make three in our little community...

IIRC, the original owner was Wee John, but I can't find the post about the stripe, so perhaps it was someone else.

Love it! It looks so purposeful on the black i-MiEV!

Hello everyone!

Living in Little Rock Arkansas, I have yet to see a single other i-MiEV other than mine, Which is a 2016 model that I had to purchase from Florida and have it trucked here and delivered, and it still gets a lot of comments from people when I park it at the office or at the market.

Some people have made fun of the shape on the Internet but I still think it’s a very forward thinking shape for its time, and I have nothing but good things to say about the car.

I only bought it this year as a used car with 9000 miles on it from the Mitsubishi dealer in Florida, and I have had it since right before the pandemic. Even though I still have my full-size luxury sedan in the garage and I have a large four-door truck for towing an RV, I have only driven this vehicle exclusively as a daily driver. It has been a joy to drive and not buying gasoline has been refreshing.

With my daily commute to work only being a few miles each way, whether it’s cold and I have to run the heat full blast or whether it’s warm and I crank up the air conditioning, I have no trouble with the car and I have no concern about range since I can charge it as soon as I notice the bars are closer to the lower point on the indicator. I normally charge it every 4 to 5 days. And after installing the 10 1/2 inch touchscreen android-based audio system with full Alexa integration it gives me that little touch of technology that I want. So at this point I have no desire to buy a $45,000 Tesla LOL.

When I first bought this car earlier this year, especially as a used vehicle, I was nervous at first however when Mitsubishi explained the amount of time I still have on the battery warranty and now in real time use having seen how reliable this vehicle is and never having any issues I just can’t say enough good things about it. I wish more people drove his vehicle and it’s sad that they’re going to completely stop manufacturing them worldwide now.

Also I cannot express enough how thankful I was to come across this owners forum, it has been a breath of fresh air and people have been extremely nice and helpful. What a great community and nice bunch of folks.

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during the pandemic and I wish everyone the absolute best of everything.

Warmest regards,

Michael Campellone

Michael, delighted the i-MiEV has been working well for you. In looking at the charging infrastructure around Little Rock, I'm saddened to see that DCFC stations are simply too far apart for you to be able to take longer daily excursions in your i-MiEV.

Hmm, depending on the size of your RV, a Tesla Model Y with trailer hitch might be able to replace both of these... :roll: :P

Take care, and have a good winter.
