New Mitsubishi I-Miev at Autosales

Testing the i-MiEV against typical UK urban usage has proved the benefits are real:

  • Costs just £376 to charge for 12,000 miles driving (£2.91 per full charge based on an average of 14.39p per kWh). If you are using the Economy 7 tariff then the cost for 12,000 miles could be as little as £223 (£1.73 per full charge based on an average of 8.54p per kWh)
  • Low servicing costs and downtime – only 4 major working parts compared to over 300 in a typical internal combustion engine
  • The i-MiEV Mitsubishi Service Plan (MSP) covers the first three years servicing at a cost of just £300
  • Servicing carried out by any one of Mitsubishi's 133 service dealers
  • Exempt from road tax
  • First year capital allowances for fleet vehicles
  • Zero benefit-in-kind company car tax
  • Exempt from London Congestion Charge
  • Free parking in some London boroughs and cities such as Milton Keynes
  • 5 year battery warranty and 3 year vehicle warranty

i-MiEV will fully charge in approximately 7 hours at a typical cost of £2.91 (£1.73 using Economy 7). Fully charged i-MiEV will drive up to 93 miles. Maximum range of 93 miles will vary with load, road conditions, driving style and other factors.
