Electric cars generally settle into one of two camps: the outlandish, like Renault's Twizy, or the discrete, like Nissan's Note. The Mitsubishi
i-MiEV, however, straddles both. Its "space jelly-bean" looks are certainly eye-catching, but they're also borrowed wholesale from the regular gas-powered version available in Japan and Europe, rather than an EV flourish for its own sake. The i-MiEV is also one of the US' cheapest EVs, though with prices starting at $21,625 (after tax incentives) it still commands a premium over more traditionally fuelled cars. Can the i-MiEV's frugal charms win us over? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
