Welcome to the EV world!

Congrats on your i-MiEV! You are now in on the secret of this wonderful little car. I just passed 70,000 miles on my 2nd i-MiEV, a 2012 premium edition that I upgraded to after a base model without DC Fast Charging. You'll notice that compared to any LEAF, new or old, battery degradation is a non-issue (I still have 10% greater than original rated range.)

Next time you have a load to haul, leave the truck and the trailer at home. Besides those concrete bags, you could fit two 55 gallon barrels in the back, a 50" TV, or most adult bicycles (front wheel removed).

Too much about this car to stuff in one post, so be sure to visit the Mitsubishi I-Miev Forum – | Mitsubishi I Forum and Electric Car News forum


PS- Its par for the course that your dealership hasn't maintained its charging stations... Mitsu has been EVen worse than Nissan in that regard.
