Quick charge?

Nice to see they sold some of the custom graphics, but no quick charge on this one (non-premium SE as noted by the stock radio and brown interior. One of the pictures shows where the QC port handle should be but isn't there).

Lowest advertised price I've seen to date: $2995, 74K miles. Vancouver, WA.

http://hotwheels.hasyourcar.com/InventoryDetail?id=012017

Incorrectly identified as SE with "Premium Package" - this is an ES.

Checking the VIN on the Mitsu site shows that it DOES have CHAdeMO - here's Mitsu's list of options for this particular car:
QUICK CHARGE PACKAGE
-DC QUICK CHARGE PORT -BATTERY WARMING SYSTEM -HEATED SIDEVIEW MIRRORS
ACCY FOG LIGHTS -W/ DRL FUNCTION
ACCY FOLDABLE CARGO TRAY INTERIOR LED PACKAGE II
-FLOOR ILLUMINATION (BLUE) -ROOM LAMP

I would sure be interested in knowing what this car's battery capacity is.

wow... and right down the road from my previous address. I recognize the dealer, your stereotypical old school independent used car lot supplied by auction bottom-feeding. :roll:

Here's a Silver 2012 i-miev (almost exactly like mine), a base model i-miev with 32,700 miles in the South of Santa Rose, CA area for $5500. I can't tell if it has quick charge though.

I'm tempted to get it and start my own i-miev fleet as others have done here. :lol:

2012 ES, Cool Metalic Silver, no quick charge, no fog lights and no navi but a cold weather package for when it gets 13 below, wait - it never gets that cold here.

Here's another 2012 i-miev for sale in white but with only 8004 miles on it for $6995 right here in my hometown. It looks like a base model but it does have quick charge.

The unique thing about this seller (Rose Motorcars) is that they're a used car dealer but, the only thing they sell are used electric vehicles. Something I find refreshing. I've been by there and they have at least 50 electrics for sale of just about any modern make and model.

ed5000, as you can see I moved your posts out of the other thread which had been generated by our admin to clarify the rules for posting for sale items. BTW, even though I moved them in here I don't consider them bargains as nowadays a bargain i-MiEV would be around $4K.

This particular thread has been used to draw attention to bargains that others have found. Any of us can go onto the many nationwide websites and find i-MiEVs - the trick is to find a jewel for a good price.
