Take a Look at the 100% Electric Mitsubishi i, plus a $100 Whole Foods Gift Card #Giveaway!

I truly love seeing automobile manufactures putting a bigger focus on green cars and alternative fuel. And even more I love learning all about them! Though there is yet to be an eco-freindly car that would accommodate my family of six with our four car seats, that doesn't stop me from checking them out. Ironically this past weekend my husband and I were talking about Mitsubishi cars and how I used to long for an Eclipse back in my early twenties. Then yesterday I learned about the 100% electric Mitsubishi i.

Obviously, the first thing that grabbed my attention about this car is that it is fully electric and gets a whopping 112 combined MPGe. That makes it the most efficient car in production! Here are some other very cool, and green, facts about the 2012 Mistubishi i (i-MiEV):

• EPA certified “real world” rating of 62 miles per charge driving range
• Has an 88 cell, 330V lithium-ion battery pack for a peak storage of 16 kWh
• Includes a convenient, portable charging cable that plugs into a standard 120V household outlet or you can upgrade to faster charging methods
• The braking system automatically reclaims the energy from deceleration and charges the battery

"The breakthrough Mitsubishi i is the most affordable 100% electric-powered mass-market production vehicle available in North America. Its starting MSRP IS $29,125 and the net MSRP* after federal tax credit is a very affordable $21,625 for the standard ES model and only $23,625 for the upgrade SE version, making the starting price for the all-new Mitsubishi i several thousand less than other mass produced electric vehicles available in the market."


Choosing to go with this compact electric vehicle doesn't mean you have to skimp on your safety. The Mitsubishi i has a six-airbag system that includes two advanced dual-stage supplemental front airbags, side-impact airbags (front), and roof-mounted curtain airbags (front and rear). Do you like cars that incorporate cool technology? One of my favorite tech aspects of this car is that it comes with a remote control that allows you to pre-heat or pre-cool your car. That is a feature everyone can appreciate, especially during the scorching summer months!

While I know color choices aren't all that important to many people, I just  have to point out one of  the awesome colors available for this car. Say hello to the Raspberry Mitsubishi i. Isn't she pretty?



If you want to take a closer look at the Mitsubishi i, find a dealer near you and schedule your test drive today!

  77. Honestly...I wouldn't buy this car. It's nine miles to our little town from home. It's 82 miles to Costco. At 62 miles per charge it's just not practical for us. We couldn't even get to the "big city" for shopping and if we could there'd no room to bring our stock-up items back home. The cost of the car and a charging station makes it impractical. Also, through the research I've done on electric vehicles I found that they don't perform well in cold climates or on hills. Since we live in the mountains and have very cold winters...cars that run on electric batteries are out for us!

    I do love that raspberry color!
