Drivers in the greater Alexandria area who are fans of electric vehicle technology are aware of the continued commitment Mitsubishi has made to produce emission-free vehicles. That’s evident in the new Mitsubishi lineup here at Lindsay Mitsubishi Alexandria with the i-MiEV. These EVs have continued to make believers out of drivers across the United States, and in Canada as well.
The City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada announced it would use the Mitsubishi i-MiEV in its fleet, ordering 13 models to replace ones that are powered by traditional gasoline. They’ll be used by the city’s staff to travel around town to meetings and worksites. To support the new electric fleet, Vancouver is installing charging stations in many places around the city.
The move makes perfect sense to us, as the Mitsubishi i-MiEV has a driving range of 62 miles, doesn’t produce a single emission, and is the most affordable electric car on the marketplace today. On top of that, Vancouver likely chose the i-MiEV because of its compact, yet comfortable design, along with three charging options. Those include a 22.5-hour charge at 120V, 7 hours at 240V, and a 30-minute 80-percent charge with a CHAdeMO Level 3 public quick-charger.
For drivers here in the Alexandria, Fairfax, and Washington, D.C. areas, Mitsubishi also offers a 8-year/100,000-mile warranty on the battery of the i-MiEV, a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a 3-year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty to give you comprehensive coverage.
All that and you get to save money by not having to go to the gas station.
