I'd like to introduce Evie my new slightly used i-MiEV.
Purchased a 2012 ES, Labrador Black, 31,000 miles for $4700 plus tax tag doc......
All of the recalls which had previously been taken care of and a fresh set of tires sealed the deal.
The drive home was pure range anxiety.
Having spent a bit of time on the used car lot, as well as it being winter in the Chicago area the RR on a "full charge" leaving the dealership was 42 for a projected 51 mile highway drive home.
The big dilemma, highway Chademos seemed to all be down along the route vs back roads a longer route and L2's.
I went back roads.
As I eased Evie into the garage she wasn't going another foot.
I think I killed the turtle.
Overnight(@10 hours) on the 110 charger and I was greeted by 30 miles of range and a preheated car.
Parked her at a free L2 a few blocks from work and at full charge in 35 degree weather she showed 61 miles.
The wife wanted to "just go for a drive" after work.
After researching, testing, evaluating, and pricing all the EV's out there I am proud to say I am an i-MiEV owner.
