Thanks! These are great. I've added this to my i-MiEV / EV bookmarks.
It's particularly interesting to see how much more positive reviews are outside the U.S. I still believe the main difference is that other markets are more used to the idea of basic kei-car style vehicles and judge the i-MiEV appropriately instead of comparing it to a Camry - or even a LEAF!
While I test drove both vehicles and appreciated the ways in which the LEAF was superior, I felt the i-MiEV had virtues of its own, and those virtues were more important for my buying decision. Buyers with other priorities could easily make a different choice, but what I've found particularly frustrating is the tendency of most American reviewers to judge the i-MiEV as flat out unworthy of consideration. Good to see a more balanced perspective in these reviews.
