News just out the other day from the European electric car blog, Push EVs, that new i-MiEVs are no longer available for ordering from Mitsubishi in Germany . . . http://pushevs.com/2016/08/14/mitsubishi-i-miev-no-longer-available-to-order-in-germany/
One of the reader comments here piqued my attention, speculating that - now the Nissan has a controlling financial interest in Mitsubishi - the possibility of a rebranded Renault Zoe showing up on US shores with a Mitsubishi nameplate could be a viable i-MiEV replacement. That's just speculation, but I like the idea. For those who aren't familiar with the Zoe, here's a look . . .
Meanwhile, over on the Plug In Cars blog the other day, I - along with vike (New Mexico based i-MiEV owner who also posts here) - had to jump in and, once again, correct blog owner Brad Berman that the North American i-MiEV is not dead yet . . . http://www.plugincars.com/mitsubishi-promises-more-plug-models-again-132057.html
I'm wondering what going to happen when the North American i-MiEV finally does go out of production (will the 2017 model be the last one?) and it's officially announced. So many automotive journalists erroneously reported the car's demise last December that they won't know how to tell the story when it actually occurs!
