Mitsubishi iMiev Buyers Guide

The iMiev by Mitsubishi has sparked recognition and excitement long before its release in 2009. The car is one of the first all-electric vehicles to ever come out in the market in a lot of countries, which fuelled its success in sales. The iMiev is iconic in both looks and condition, but other electric cars have also become available worldwide. While the iMiev still enjoys acclaim and healthy sales, its weaknesses have become points that other electric vehicles are steadily challenging.

Pros

Charging the car can take seven hours using the standard 13A 240v charging equipment that comes with it. The iMiev can also be charged at charging points for up to 80% in 30 minutes. The range is officially placed at 93 miles without air conditioning and at average speed. The best part about this car is its running costs. The iMiev was recognised as the most fuel efficient EPA vehicle in 2012. An overnight charge or seven hours costs £2. 120,000 miles driving costs £270. With Economy 7, owners can greatly decrease these numbers. Because of zero emissions, parking is free and owners are exempt from road tax and London Congestion Charge.

The iMiev is a comfortable ride as it absorbs bumps along the road with ease. The steering is also very light, and pulling power comes instantly thanks to 180Nm of torque. The ride is also very quiet, as with all electric cars. But wind and road noise are also at a bare minimum. The front seats are very comfortable and supportive. The car’s unique shape also makes parking fairly easy.

Compared to its rebadged rivals the Peugeot iOn and the Citroen C-Zero, the iMiev’s interior is more stylish and the exterior fully customisable. The dashboard is made of matte-like material and the layout is logical. Though marketed as a kei car, the iMiev has an impressive interior space thanks to a high ceiling and low seats. Its boot space is at 227 litres, rivalling a lot of other cars in the segment.

While this car only comes in one trim level, buyers will still get the full treatment with air conditioning, heated driver’s seat, electric windows and mirrors, stereo system, and remote central locking. Other optional equipment include sat nav, rear parking sensor, Bluetooth and Kenwood hi-fi system. Safety features are active stability control, six airbags, ISOFIX anchorage for seats, and others.

Cons

The iMiev is run by a 16 kWh 58 MJ li-ion battery capable of 66bhp in engine terms. Top speed is at 87mph, with a 0-63mph sprint over 13 seconds – not very bad for an e-car, although other cars in the segment have come up with better numbers. Drivers and passengers will also notice a sizable amount of body roll when the iMiev swings around corners, which may give an uncomfortable ride around the city. Owning an iMiev has a lot of benefits, although buyers may have to be ready to pay more for the car.

The iMiev is undoubtedly a very capable electric car, but other cars have surpassed its features at more than one point. Buyers may want to check other cars in the segment before settling on this one.
