If you live in the UK and have been pining for a chance to buy the i-MiEV all-electric city car when it appears on your shores, now is the time to register your interest with Mitsubishi. According to poster Nikki on the Electric Vehicle Discussion List (EVDL) Mitsubishi has told her (I'm assuming it's a "her") the cars may arrive as early as Q1 next year. Quantities will be extremely limited at first so if you are sure you want one you should take immediate action by clicking here and give them all your contact info. Curiously, Misubishi refers to the car as the "i-EV" on this site.

If you live in the U.S., there isn't anywhere to officially declare our purchasing intentions though unofficially you can always sign this petition to Mitsubishi and hope that gets their attention. We'll let you know if it does.

      The official name for the car is "Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle". It is based on the existing "i" city car being sold in Japan. Hence the "i" placed in front. The title of the web page is correct. Just instead of abbreviating Mitsubishi with an "M" they spelled it out and kept the rest of the abbreviation.

      I just wish there was consistency. The name has showed up as "i MiEV", "iMiEV", "MiEV" and "i-MiEV" in the press reports. Not to mention that there is a "sport" version to add to the confusion.

      As un-manly as this car is, being small, timid, and not very performance based, I still have an affinity for the black one. I'd love for them to bring it to the states so the wife could get it.

      Great news! I thought this car was still a couple of years away from selling in the UK !!!!

      Done. Hopefully they'll send me an invitation for test drive.
