I've only ever seen one downtown before I bought mine.
Since then I've seen a million and one Smart cars, 50 Volts and at least 20 Leafs. Even a neighbor of mine has a Leaf and I live in the outskirts of town.
Sheesh! where are you guys?? I kinda like the rarity I'll admit.

I saw a purple one driving past Chipotle's in Phoenix not too long ago.

I do know of one in Tucson.

Before I purchased my Diamond White I-Miev, I saw 2 different I-Miev 2 days in a row in San Francisco. 1 White/Blue and 1 Raspberry (I have spotted the Raspberry one before).

I live in Marietta, Georgia near Atlanta. I have seen one or two I-MiEVs on the road. The original poster is right that they are rare to be seen. I normally see Nissan Leafs everyday. From time to time I see a Tesla. I see Sparks, but I don't know if they are EVs or not. I always feel that my I-MiEV is unique. I bought mine at CarMax.

prodigious1one, thank you for your post. At this point in history, we are realizing that we are driving a unique and rare vehicle. Always fun to see another one and wave madly, just as in the early days of true sports cars. Seeing an old Citroen or Saab elicits a thumbs-up to their drivers from me. Conversely, whereas Tesla Roadsters usually give my i-MiEV a thumbs-up, Model S drivers are clueless.

The electric Spark looks like this:

Yes, the i-MiEV is definitely unique. It's a small car that isn't so small.

Very doubtful that you've ever seen any Spark EV's in Georgia. The Spark EV is a compliance car that's only sold in California and Oregon, and just now coming to Maryland. Although it's not impossible because someone that really wanted one could have bought a new one and had it shipped to Georgia, or a used dealer could purchase one at auction and sell it in Georgia. Not impossible, just unlikely!

I see more Tesla's around here than any other EV. Two tonight at the chargers in Lexington. The transport driver called today and my new 2016 blue i-MiEV arrives on Monday (!!!!!!)
