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.
• 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!
