I am in rockford Illinois. This is my second electric car. My first was a 2009 Kandi ev....which is parked next to my miev in my driveway as we speak.
I will use the miev to go back and forth to work mostly. 3 miles from work so perfect! And it has the regular speeds,heat and Air conditioning that the Kandi doesn't. Kandi is now my car show vehicle....
I am mostly impressed by the regenerative braking and the impressive acceleration....and the fact that there is a national dealer/service network.

Quite a step up! http://prosserrv.com/electric-vehicles.html Three miles to work? - the Kandi would be good for that, although my wife would make me walk or at most ride a bicycle. :roll:

Had an odd experience with progressive insurance last evening. I thought the $600 for 6 months with state farm was high....but progressive had me on hold for over half an hour because they couldn't even find the miev in their system. Hahaha! Their quote was just a bit less when they finally figured it out.

That's odd. I have Progressive and they had no problem finding the i-MiEV.

3 miles, that is at least a week and a half on one charge without other trips. If you park in the sun, you could do a solar roof and never plug in again. 8-) ;)

Enjoying my miev immensely.
I find it odd that they recommend against 'topping it off ' when its over half full though. I guess that's a lithium ion thing...right?
