2014 Mitsubishi i

After a one-year hiatus, the Mitsubishi i is again available to American consumers. Meet the 2014 Mitsubishi i.

One of the early promises of modern electric vehicles was that range would go up and prices would come down as volume and technology improved. And that is exactly what’s been happening – and somewhat sooner than many expected.

2012 Mitsubishi i

Editor Dave Hall charged Consumer Guide’s long-term Mitsubishi i at a charging station located in a pricey downtown-Chicago parking garage.

The Mitsubishi i is a new electric car. It relies exclusively on batteries and an electric motor for propulsion; no gasoline or diesel fuel here. After a weekend of driving our new long-term-test 2012 Mitsubishi i, I made a few observations and encountered a few new challenges presented by this electric car—and electric cars in general.

Can you spy the i’s storage bins? In this photo, a tiny one is hidden behind the steering wheel, and each door has a narrow bin. For this author, the seat cushions were the real problem. (Mitsubishi i cabin)

If you’re considering buying a Mitsubishi i, make sure you have deep pockets—literally. You’ll need ’em to put all your stuff.

During my three-day stint in the pint-sized electric vehicle, I almost pulled an Albert Brooks. In the 1991 movie Defending Your Life, Brooks was fiddling with a Barbra Streisand CD when he ran into a bus, ending his so-called life. When I drove the i, I too was distracted—because my stuff was falling over the place.

Whether by deft planning or stroke of luck, Mitsubishi has found itself in an enviable marketing position.

With the introduction of the new Eclipse Cross compact crossover slated for next spring – and the dropping of the electric i-MiEV and long-running Lancer sedan – Mitsubishi will be fielding a lineup of three crossovers and one car line (the slow-selling Mirage) for 2018. That puts the bulk of its wares in the hot-selling “small crossover” segment.
