Mitsubishi begin delivery of EVs on West Coast

 Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc. has begun delivering the company’s all-new, 100 percent electric-powered 2012 Mitsubishi i featuring Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle or MiEV technology to the first retail customers in the continental United States.  The vehicle were delivered to early adopters in California  and Oregon and Washington State are the fortunate early adopters who wanted to be among the first the all-electric production vehicle from Mitsubishi. Not only is the 2012 Mitsubishi i the most affordably-priced mass-market EV available in the United States but it was recently named the #1 vehicle on the EPA’s list of “Fuel Economy Leaders: 2012 Model Year” in the governmental agency’s annual Fuel Economy Guide, Mitsubishi officials noted.
 The very first Hawaii retail delivery of the 2012 Mitsubishi i occurred last month in a formal ceremony at the Hawaii State Capitol Building in Honolulu
   Currently available on the West Coast and Hawaii, the 2012 Mitsubishi i will be available across much of the United Sates by this summer. With a starting net value of $21,625 for the well-equipped entry-level ES model, the 2012 Mitsubishi i is the first of several new advanced, alternative-fuel production vehicles that the Japanese auto manufacturer plans on bringing to the North American market in the next few years.

Why would anybody want to buy such a poorly engineered car from Mitsubishi? They are not serviceable except at the dealer. They deliberately design in the need for special tools to remove components. Things like heater cores removal require the entire interior to be removed to get the part out. The dash board falls apart and then the dealer wants $1000 for the part. To get both these components replaced was $2300 from the dealer. Point is – When a Mitsubishi product has a KBB value of $4000 or less and needs this type of part replacement, the vehicle is beyond economical repair. Maybe most people have already figured this out and that is why Mitsubishi sales are in the toilet. Don’t buy any Mitsubishi product until they improve their engineering practices. Last person out – turn out the lights. RIP Mitsubishi.
