Test driving the new Mitsubishi i MiEV
I-GO is one of the few places in North America where Mitsubishi has chosen to demo the i MiEV, currently sold only in Japan.

The new, zero-emissions electric vehicle (EV) puts the grin in green. It gets up to 100 miles on a full battery charge. Emits only 30% of the CO2 of a gas-powered minicar even when taking into account emissions at the power plants that generate the electricity needed to charge the car. And it costs at least one-third less to drive (or even less, depending on the price of electricity and whether it’s charged during off-peak hours) than a comparable gasoline vehicle. The i MiEV gets its oomph from high-energy-density lithium-ion batteries and a compact, highly efficient motor.
