Rarer than a Mirai!

Wed Jan 24, 2018 3:20 pm

Is exactly what we can now claim about the i-MiEV, with some 3000 of the fool cells substantially outnumbering 2028 of our jellybeans that were sold in the USA.

Sales totals of all EVs at
2012 i-SE "MR BEAN" 102,600 miles
2000 Mazda Miata EV, 78 kW, 17 kWh
1983 Grumman Kurbwatt EV,170 kW, 32 kWh
1983 Mazda RX-7 EV 43 kW 10 kWh
1971 "Karmann Eclectric" EV 240 kW 19 kWh
1965 Karmann Ghia Cabriolet

At least we can say the i-MiEV is more evenly distributed. I've seen i-MiEVs; never seen a Mirai in person. I assume they're mostly in California, like the fueling stations (apparently there are also two stations in South Carolina, one in Massachusetts and one in Connecticut -- none near me).

Just yesterday, I was thinking -- I probably see more Mitsubishi cars (of all kinds), than I do EVs (of any brand). And Mitsubishi is supposedly a pretty marginal player in the U.S.... kinda puts things in perspective. :( On the other hand, I'm definitely seeing more EVs as time goes by -- enough that I decided not to keep posting every instance in the "EVs in everyday life" thread. :) (At least three since my last post there -- a Leaf passing the other way, a Tesla that cut me off in traffic, an i3 in a parking lot.)

Quite amazing that 300 Miraie a month have been sold, and this would be high on my wish list.
