I agree, there are PLENTY of Tesla's around this area alone.

I went to Mitsu dealer in Wilmington yesterday, he said that there is another 'i' here, he thought Lexington.

Said he thought it was White in color. I will have to keep my eyes peeled

I've seen a few i-MiEVs in the wild here in the Chicagoland area. Even my parents were able to spot one right after purchasing mine. I agree it's exciting to see others on the road. I've even met one actual owner and chatted with him for an hour right before I made my i-MiEV purchase. That was a cool experience and I'm always on the loom out for i's.

David in the wild:
1. White ES (met owner)
2. White/blue SE
3. White ES (had dealership paper plates, appeared to be on a test drive)
4. Silver


Parents in the wild:
1. Raspberry

Tesla and LEAF are very common, I see them almost daily and multiple times at best.

Today I saw another I-MiEV being driven for the first time. It also happened in Rockford and was a white with blue model. It appears the owner had it brought up from Texas when moving. So it would appear there are three in Rockford now.
Owner since 8/22/2012

I spotted a blue i across from Paradise Valley mall late this afternoon.

We drove by to say hello, but the owner wasn't around.

Saw my first i-MiEV in the wild in ages this morning, a silver one: he was heading up Grant Avenue from El Camino Real in Mountain View. I flashed my headlights and he waved. 8-)

Took my family for a road trip from San Francisco to Portland for the past week. On our way home we stopped by a Target store in Medford, Oregon and we saw a pure white I-Miev in the parking lot :)

That might have been acensor on this forum. There is also an i-MiEV on a used car lot up there (my wife is presently in Medford caring for her parents while her brother is out of town) and I'm trying to get her to convince her brother to make a really low-ball offer...:roll:

Naturally, the first car is beautifully proportioned whereas the one on the right is a mean-looking chunk of metal with a sawed-off aft end. :twisted: Look how much more-effectively the i-MiEV utilizes the volume (and it's both shorter and narrower than that other thing).

PS. How much was the ticket for parking in front of the fire hydrant? :roll:
