The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is the lowest-priced, fully electric passenger car available to Americans, priced at just $23,845, which is $6,130 less than when the car last appeared on our shores in 2012. After a $7,500 federal tax credit, the price will be a quite-affordable $16,345. This is thousands less than the Chevrolet Spark and Nissan LEAF. At an EPA-rated 112 miles per gallon equivalent, it's one of the most energy-efficient cars on the market. Although the i-MiEV is quite a bit smaller than the Nissan LEAF, it offers nearly as much passenger space, and for those who plan to stay in the city, it offers even better maneuverability and parking ease than the trend-setting Nissan.
