Who said the Europe was not interested in EVs?


I sat in one of these at a recent car show and was delighted. Don't know what the real world drive results are yet and we have little data from reviewers or test drives - but all QUALITY EVs are welcome. We wish Mitusbishi much luck in this roll out.


so, when are they planning on bringing these to the US?


The i-MiEV is very small.
Wait till you see one.
Handy for town use, however.
