You do have to roll your eye regarding their suggestion that - if you had your eye set on a subcompact electric car - you might want to consider a far larger PHEV SUV or a gas burner subcompact. At least they further recommend the option of finding a used i-MiEV (somehow I don't think I'd ever see something like that on the North American site, if circumstances were different here.)
I think the Renault Zoe is doing well, lots of those about - the nearest substitute and the people I bought the IMIEV from bought one as a replacement. Though I have only come to the conclusion that although the design of the Zoe is nice, more conventional etc - its not as good as the I-MIEV.
Also, if anything - it may raise the status and bolster used values a bit on the I - unsure.
If the car lasts 5 years, it will have paid for itself.
