For the 2014 model year, Mitsubishi Motors' breakthrough 100% electric-powered production vehicle model – the Mitsubishi i-MiEV – not only receives a generous expansion of its standard equipment features but also receives a substantial price cut, making this eco-friendly and fun-to-drive runabout perhaps the most compelling mass-produced electric vehicle (EV) value in America today.

To date, more than 30,000 Mitsubishi i-MiEV and i-MiEV-based production vehicles have been sold around the globe. In such diverse markets as the U.S., Europe and Asia, the i-MiEV has proven to be a safe, convenient and utterly reliable eco-friendly form of personal transportation in any market in which it is sold.

The 2014 model year Mitsubishi i-MiEV ES model including DC quick charge port, battery warming system and heated side view mirrors now starts at only $22,995* – a substantial $6,130 price reduction from the previous generation. After factoring in the Federal tax credit of $7,500, the net MSRP of the 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV drops down to only $15,495**.

In fact, after factoring in the available EV federal tax credit of $7,500 and, for example, the California state EV financial incentive of up to $2,500***, (other generous financial incentives are available through numerous states and municipalities), residents in California can obtain the technologically-advanced 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV as low as $12,995.

What's more, the 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV boasts a much more comprehensive standard equipment package. Newly added as standard equipment at no charge to the consumer:

Accessories/Features
Driver and front passenger heated seats; CHAdeMO DC quick charge port; battery warming system; heated side view mirrors; rear speakers; 8A/12A switchable Level 1 charging cable; charge port lamp

Interior Enhancements
Leather-covered steering wheel and shift knob; passenger-side vanity mirror with lid; numerous decorative color/trim upgrades

Exterior Enhancements
Aluminum wheels; front fog lights; new daytime running lights (DRL); black-out door sash trim

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV can be recharged using three distinct methods: a conventional 120 V Level 1 8A/12A portable charging cable that plugs into a standard wall outlet**** (estimated charge time from near empty to fully charged – approximately 22 hours for 8 amp/14 hours for 12 amp); a 240V/15A Level 2 charging system (estimated charge time - 7 hours); and through a CHAdeMO Level 3 DC quick charging station (estimated charge time to 80% full - less than 30 minutes).

Mitsubishi Motors' eco-friendly and attainably-priced electric vehicle is a paragon of efficiency: Its EPA-rated fuel economy is 126 city/99 highway/112 combined MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). What's more, the i-MiEV's "real world" EPA-rated driving range is 62 miles and a very robust 98 miles/charge in the EPA's LA4 driving cycle range.

Every 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV vehicle includes an 8-year/100,000 mile warranty for its advanced lithium-ion main drive battery pack.

Powered by Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology, the rear-wheel drive Mitsubishi i-MiEV's drive system includes a 49 kW (66 bhp) AC synchronous electric motor; an 88 cell, 330V lithium-ion main drive battery pack for a peak storage of 16 kWh; and a single fixed reduction gear transmission. This electric motor is capable of producing its peak torque of 145 lb.-ft. almost instantaneously when accelerating from a standstill. The i-MiEV has a top speed of approximately 80 mph.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV's shift selector allows the driver to choose between three drive settings to maximize driving efficiency and/or to increase energy recycling from the vehicle's regenerative braking system:

"D"-position
Allows maximum performance from the vehicle as it generates 100% torque in direct response to accelerator input

"ECO"-position
Helps to maximize energy usage ("fuel" economy) by slightly reducing overall power output to help reduce the rate of battery consumption

"B"-position
Increases the regenerative brake biasing to augment energy recycling (with 100% of power production available, same as in the "D" position)

Safety features included as standard on every 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV consist of a 6 air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) featuring advanced dual front air bags, side air bags and side curtain air bags; anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA); brake override system; Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL); and specialized EV-related safety features including an Approaching Vehicle Audible System (AVAS) to help alert pedestrians to the approaching electric vehicle and a high-voltage power cut-off system.

Comfort and convenience features included on every Mitsubishi i-MiEV include a specially-designed highly energy-efficient HVAC system consisting of an electric manual air conditioner with micron filter and an electric compressor cabin heater; driver/front passenger heated seats; leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob; a 6 speaker 100-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3/WMA; auxiliary 12V DC power outlet; vehicle security system; power windows/mirrors/door locks; CHAdeMO DC quick charge port; heated side view mirrors; battery warming system; front fog lights; aluminum alloy wheels; and the very clever MiEV remote system that allows the lithium-ion main drive battery pack to be charged via timer as well as pre-activating either the air conditioning or heater.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV may be compact in its overall dimensions, but this EV's clever packaging and design makes for very roomy and comfortable accommodations for four adult-size passengers. With its relatively tall roofline, rear-mounted electric motor and lithium-ion-ion main battery pack placed safely and securely in a watertight and dustproof stainless steel safety cell underneath the floor of the passenger compartment, even the rear passengers will experience an exceptionally satisfying degree of leg room. There's even a small cargo area at the back of the vehicle that is more than capable of carrying numerous bags of groceries or other items. And with the 50/50 rear seats folded flat, the cargo capacity expands greatly.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is available in four dynamic exterior colors: Labrador Black, Diamond White, Cool Silver and a new stunning Aqua Marine Blue.
