Selling nice 2012 MiEV.... Cheap

Fri Apr 30, 2021 12:32 pm

(BTW.... This is showing me as a new member.
Actually I've been here since 2013 under the same email address,
but for some reason unable to login under my old membership.)

EDITED/ADDED NOTE; I forgot to mention I and the car are in Ashland Oregon.

2012 iMiEV SE with 43,000 miles, $5000 (before I edited this the typo had it at $500 :roll: ) or make offer. In excellent shape. Battery almost has original range.
We love It. I thoroughly expected to keep it at least another 10 years. I will miss it.
Only reason we're selling is my wife got enamored with a new Chevy Bolt Electric car....mainly because she wants all the electronic safety features such as blind-spot warning...and likes the idea of more range. We don't need two EVs.

(Pardon all the extra detail below that most of you would know anyhow.)

It's the Mitsubishi i-MiEV ES model (the top of the two model line up.)
2012 with 42,000 miles. Purchased new in 2013 April. One owner, me.
Always driven and maintained (with what little maintenance is needed) with TLC.
Battery charging and care with TLC.
(That is we never fully drain the battery and usually only charge it up to 90% capacity)
Battery has shown hardly any loss of capacity in the 8 years we've owned it.
Always garaged.
Third party upgraded charger that works on either 120v or 240volts.
All three recalls completed.
Almost new tires on it.
White with blue trim.
Remarkable amount of usable space in small four seat hatchback design.
Can be pre-cooled and preheated while connected to house power, with remote control.
Great visibility and handling.

Does not have the optional super high speed charging port.
(On the other hand, that means the battery has never been subjected to a high speed charge.)
Realistically, whomever gets it should not count on more than 65 miles round trip range. (We once got 125 miles but would never count on that.)
Maximum speed 80mph.
In my option unsuitable for long trips, even with plenty of chargers on the route.

The ES was the bottom of the three models offered for 2012. Next up was the SE with alloy wheels and driving lights and the top of the line is the SE Premium, with Nav, standard quick charge & all the goodies

Wish I was closer - For $500, I would have bought it yesterday!
