Mitsubishi i MiEV - Click above for high-res image gallery
With incentives, Mitsubishi's all-electric i MiEV car will cost about $31,300 when it goes on sale in Japan later this year. That's a pile of cash for the zero-tailpipe emissions car. The good news is that Mitsubishi's president has announced that it plans to cut the price in half (!) by the "mid-2010s," according to Bloomberg. Since the pre-incentive price is in the mid-$40,000s, the price for the i MiEV should be around $21,000 in five or so years. Another surprise: a plug-in hybrid i MiEV will go on sale in 2013. Will it be called the MiPHEV? Thanks to Yanquetino for the tip!
