Re: Any I Witnesses?

I was baffled last sunday when I turned onto the main road and see a white Citroen C zero come towards us from the other direction. Since there are just 150 or so Citroen C zero cars in the Netherlands it was rare to see one so far out. There are also 130 Mitsubishi i's and 130 Peugeot Ions. So in all it's a pretty rare car to spot in the wild with about a 150 in total.

The car was unstickered, which likely means it's a private ownership instead of a company car or lease. That makes sense too, since most lease terms are 3 or 5 years. So 2010 cars are now going to private ownership.

Spotted a blue/white i-MiEV at Eaton yesterday. Apparently the owner works there. I think this is the same car I saw a few weeks ago.

I left him my card, a asking him to send me an email as we both drive i-MiEVs.

I saw a white I-miev with the blue hood and the electric plug decal along the sides sitting outside the Oakland Library today around noon. I know it's not 3 but hey, I don't see too many other i-mievs around here. :mrgreen:

My wife sent me this photo of an i-MiEV she spotted in a Medford, Oregon, hospital parking lot. What I like is the tapered door ding protector.

Nice. Judging by the door sash color, that is a 2014 or newer (only the blue/white 2012 had black instead of body color). Hmm, white door sashes make the vent shades stand out more vs. the black.

Door ding protector is a Mitsubishi OEM accessory.

Parking at an Orienteering event in Western Australia, and yes, I did try to get back in the wrong one afterwards.

By the license plates, I'm guessing there's at least 151 other i-Mievs out there?

you know your resale value is getting low if you happen upon this in the wild...

btw- the "compress photo" option in MS Office worked much easier than other options I tried for reformatting the photo.

I finally saw my first i-MiEV in the wild today! That is, in my own town, and not at a Mitsubishi dealer (or near an electric charger... although I haven't actually seen those, either, except in pictures on PlugShare). A blue one. We met at an intersection. I didn't have time to stop or anything, but I waved. I'm not sure they saw me. :)
