Things you'll find in the videos (pasted after the jump) of everyday New Zealanders test driving the Mitsubishi iMiEV: astonishment at the silent motor, a joke about the horn "sounding like an electric car," another joke about putting a huge exhaust pipe under the back, just to mess with people and someone not getting anxious about the exhaust generated at a stoplight. "I'm just enjoying the guilt-free," says driver #1, Laurie Foon. Overall, the (assumed) natural responses to people testing this all-electric city car in the videos posted by MitsubishiMotorsNZ shows that the company should have a hit on their hands if they can just deliver what the car promises.
Tipster Yanquetino said that he "found that this particular 'soccer Mom's' reaction to the iMiEV was more informative than a lot of the 'official' propaganda we see on the internet. Nothing like spontaneous, unrehearsed reactions, if you ask me." He added: "I now want an iMiEV more than ever."
Thanks to Yanquetino for the tip! You can give us your own reactions after checking the clips out. We've pasted all six after the jump.
