On the shifter, past B, is C .
What's C for?
Ok, I found it online:
"the C-position for comfortable driving in the suburbs"

Nicely-appointed and I'm envious of those regen paddles, which I had been asking for dating back to Aptera and in our early days here. According to this website, the present-day i-MiEV is also available in Canada. :shock:

Their tooling must be amortized by now as Mitsubishi has made no substantial changes in ten years. Pity, as a higher-capacity pack would make the i-MiEV attractive to those who need it as well as innumerates. Despite what most people need, the present-day trend of 200+ mile range will continue as a marketing salespoint (sort of like number of megapixels in the digital camera race). Hope the amortized tooling and small battery means that the i-MiEV price undercuts all other BEVs.

For myself, I would prefer the narrower non-NA version simply for ease of squeezing into parking spots.
