While we've already driven the 2012 Mitsubishi i and shared both its vital statistics and our impressions, we thought you might appreciate a second opinion. The video series Green Overdrive offers just that. With Katie Fehrenbacher behind the wheel, the crew spent a day with the all-electric, putting it through the demands of life in San Francisco and recorded the results.

The assessment includes information owners will likely be happy to learn. For instance, you can fit a bicycle in the back without removing the wheels. (Very handy.) Also, the diminutive four-door can easily handle the twisty descent of the iconic Lombard Street.

Perhaps one of the more interesting, dare we say poignant, parts of the piece had to do with charging while on the go. Using the PlugShare app, they tracked down a place to boost the battery, but when they arrived, they frustratingly found that the available chargers didn't fit the 3-pronged plug they were equipped with. Had they been more successful, it's doubtful their apparent range anxiety would have been quickly relieved, as added miles come pretty slowly at 120 volts.

Hit the jump for some electric-jellybean-meets-geek-goddess action and let us know if their assessment alters your own view of the American version of the 2012 Mitsubishi i.
