Mitsubishi to Roll Out 2016 i-MiEV Electric Car in U.S.

WASHINGTON Ė Mitsubishi will start selling next month in the United States its 2016 i-MiEV electric car, which, according to the Japanese manufacturer, will remain the cheapest car of its kind in North America.

Basic price for the 2016 i-MiEV will be $22,995, but Mitsubishi said the car qualifies for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits that may bring down the cost for buyers to $15,495.

On top of that, many state and local governments offer additional tax credits for electric cars that might cut the price even further.

Novelties in the 2016 i-MiEV include optional equipment such as a navigation system with a 7-inch touchscreen, real-time traffic information, 3D maps, Bluetooth, a USB port and rearview camera.

Standard equipment includes heated front seats, 6-speaker sound system, aluminum tire rims, anti-fog headlights, traction and stability control, and sound alarm for pedestrians.

The carís lithium-ion battery may be recharged up to 80 percent with a fast charger, while the full 240-volt battery charge can be obtained in seven hours.

The i-MiEV comes with a synchronic, permanent magnet, engine weighing 49 kilograms (108 pounds) that generates 49 KW power.

The i-MiEV version to be sold in North America has an interior cabin 114 millimeters (4.48 inches) longer than the model offered in Europe, while both have room for four people.

Mitsubishi started selling its 5-door i-MiEV in Japan and Europe in 2009, gradually expanding to other markets.

In 2014, Mitsubishi sold 195 i-MiEV cars in the United States.
