We’ve done about the same over 5 years. Our use of the iMiev is down somewhat because everyone here prefers the Volt, which now has over 60,000 miles.

One particular observation is that even with greater mileage, the Volt shows no traction battery degradation.

I'm also at just under 51k miles but in 4.5 years. My car had 2100 miles on it when I bought in in 2015.

I just transferred to a new job location in San Leandro, which is about 4 miles from home. I don't even have to get on a freeway which works really well with this little car :D . I love it because I really don't need to plug in but once a week. Before I had to plug in every night although one time I did drive to my old work twice without a charge (forgot to plug in) and made it home the second day on turtle which was the only time I ever been on turtle in this car.

Our little car, 2012, has about 46,000 miles too! I think it usually still gets about 62 RR when fully charged, it's been a while since I fully charged it. Mostly not freeway driving, so that may affect the RR positively.

Canion ah: 29.1 as of the last screen shot a month or so ago. :roll:

In any event, hope again that everyone is looking forward to another Happy New Year! :D


Six years and 53k+ miles.

Not as much usage due to COVID.

Hope everyone is looking forward to a Happy New Year!

Hi,
This Car is not economical !!! They simply shift the gasoline costs that the gas station takes to the manufacturer (In this case Mitsubishi ) !
The charger goes bad after 8 years or so and you must pay 4000 euro for another! The battery must be changed after 15 years or so and cost until yet 10.000 euro! Is that no Green driving thanks to Mitsubishi ?????

Bear crossed the 50,000 mile mark on February 25, 2021. In second place, Photon has 35,000 miles, and Koorz has 26,300 miles, but had 19,000 miles on when I bought it.

Throw in about 1,000 miles behind the wheels of other EVs (mostly a Tesla Model S), and I’m close to 100,000 miles of electric driving since 2012 when I first drove a Nissan LEAF.

I drove my 2012 Silver I-Miev for nearly 60,000 miles for over nearly 6 years and the only thing I really paid for was for 6 tires, a 12 volt battery, a key, and an MCU fuse. Since I park the car in covered parking at home or work I'm still on the original wiper blades. For fuel I have solar but, even before that my bill never really increased much after I bought the car. It was almost undetectable.

For repairs Mutsubishi took care of it under warranty or recall. For the on board charger I repaired it myself by carefully following the instructions of a few very helpful individuals on this group (Thanks!).

I don't think you can get any more economical then that without having to pedal something yourself.

You were lucky to repair it yourself! My problem with my OBC is not 2 blown capacitors and some resistors! I charge my ION also with sollar or at my work but 10.000 euros for a battery must be considered to the cost of driving this car and nobody talks about it! Economic is when you buy this car new at 18.000 euros and swap the battery under guaranty maybe in 6 years!
