Mitsubishi’s Electric i to Be Most Affordable Electric Car Available in US at $21K
Posted By Laura K. Cowan On April 22, 2011 @ 9:48 am In automotive,Green Transportation,Innovation | No Comments
Mitsubishi announced at the New York auto show  that its all-electric i car will cost just over $21,000 after the $7,000 federal tax rebate for EV s. The goal was to get the price under $20k, but the earthquake apparently upset those plans. Still, a base price of $27,990 isn’t bad for a green  EV. The odd thing? To reserve a Mitsubishi i , you have to pay the deposit via PayPal.
The Mitsubishi i will be available in dealerships in January 2012. If you want one now, you’ll have to go to Japan or Europe for the global version of the car. The i is on the small side for an EV , but so is the price, making the i the most affordable electric car available in the U.S.
