A review on: Mitsubishi i MiEV
EVowner

Pros: Don't care about the price of gas, quiet drive is quite relaxing, plenty of leg room for 6'3" owner

Cons: The driving range is a known limitation before purchasing, so it's not a true con in the sence on would be surprised by it.

My wife and I own four other cars and a motorcycle in addition to the i-MiEV.  I usually rotate cars in and out of storage so they all get driven during the year.  That may change now that we have this.  I plan on driving this all year round, including northern Illinois winters.  My drive to work is two miles so this car will easily handle over 90 percent of the driving I...

“ I'm a die-hard EV nut, got the bug a long time ago.  My problem is I never had much money or time to devote to building and developing EVs.  That's why Xebra has always been just perfect for me.  I've always liked ZAP's approach of electric bikes, scooters, now motorcycles, cars and trucks.  And I'm proud to say I have come to own many of these since they started in 1994. It's sort of weird...” --zapatista

Zap Electric Cars Alias

“The three-wheeled Alias, due to go into production in 2009, will have a top speed of over 100 miles an hour and go 150 miles on a charge, according to Zap. It will sell for $30,000. The Alias will also likely come with a hybrid range extender, a small gas motor that can power the car or charge the battery. Zap said last year it planned to release a $30,000 electric car in 2009 but didn't...” --Casiqa

“Unfortunately our local dealer is going out of business, but this allowed us to buy a 2008 Xebra PK for $4000 new and it is awesome.  Well not perfect, but fits our needs very well.  The quality is similar to other reviews, it is similar to a old bug, but good enough.  I am pricing a few upgrades, 84v and PakTrakr,maybe even a new rear spring.  I love this truck already, hope it lasts, it is...” --justrobert

2008 Tesla Roadster

“I haven't sat behind the wheel of a Roadster (with it turned on, anyway) but as a passenger, it's pretty hard to beat.  The acceleration power is down right startling.  When you set up on that petal, hold on to your hat, because it could go flying.  Braking down from high speeds (of course depending on the road) is really quite smooth as well.  The turning radius is tight and driving at normal...” --stins

Mitsubishi i MiEV

“I had the pleasure of test driving one of the road models of this car in LA during the auto show. It was surprisingly fast and handled very well. I guess the biggest mainstream criticisms are that it's small, expensive (about $40k), has a short range (80-100 miles), and is only available in Japan. Nevertheless, I found the ride appealing and I think it's a great car to be the first entry from a...” --SVOboy

Zenn Motors ZENN Hatchback

“It is too slow at 25 MPH, I installed an after market motor and controller to go 35MPH which was much better. I have heard of several people haveing charger failures, roof cracking, doors leaking, early battery failures (discover brand),. The interface controll module is very inacurate. It tells the speed, and battery guage. It is one of the parts that has hade a high failure rate, and costs...” --Boppster

“I have had mine about two months now, it is so awsome to have the great range that lithium offers over lead acid. For the cost of lithium now I do not understand why lead acid is not the standard. In my ZENN the discover batteries cost about $2, 500 to replace. Lithium batteries that cost $3,000 would increase the range from 25 miles up to about 40-45 miles. they would last 5 times longer. This...” --Boppster

“It turns out that the man behind Spark-EV (Michael Papp) was arrested for failing to deliver purchased EVs, and then filed for bankruptcy. So Spark-EV promised to have the first affordable highway speed EV available in North America and completely failed to deliver. What a scam.” --dana1981
