The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is a cute little car that (we'll be honest) we didn't really think would make it into the real world. The all-electric vehicle has a top speed of about 80 mph and can travel a maximum 100 miles on an all-night charge of its batteries.
This is pretty exceptional for an electric vehicle, even a two-seater that's designed primarily for in-city use. But we thought the i-MiEV was just going to be another Japan-only or proof-of-concept vehicle before the real cars hit the streets in half a decade or so.
But Mitsubishi has proven us wrong, with plans to take the i-MiEV "global" (Europe, N. America and Japan) in 2010. We imagine U.S. yearly sales won't break out of the thousands for a while, but as for a major motor company bringing an all-electric vehicle to market in the U.S. (again), it looks like Mitsubishi wins.
