Re: Our iMiEV Nicknames and What Has the iMiEV Been Called

A year-and-a-half ago I found and picked up this used SE Premium for my friend in Boise, and, despite his having a collection of vehicles to rival mine, it turns out that the i-MiEV is now their go-to everyday car. They've named it Errand Boy.

My car is nicknamed morangwatt.
First, because is a beautiful shade of red and the morango is the portuguese word for strawberry.
Furthermore, this can be read as morangote, which is a way of saying "little strawberry"

Yeah, I like puns. :)

What an appropriate play on words! The name is Irish and means 'intoxicating'! :D
