As Japan’s first widely marketed electric vehicle, the clean-running four-seat i-MIEV costs US$30,000 thanks to government incentives. With a top speed of 82-miles-per-hour, the bubble-shaped i-MIEV uses lithium-ion batteries that can be conveniently charged either through a regular electric socket or in just 30 minutes at a special recharging station.

The vehicle, which can cruise up to 160 kilometers on a single charge, is also being tested in the United States for a planned release in the near future. Bravo, Mitsubishi and Japan! We are excited at the emergence of such innovative transport technology and can’t wait to see more vehicles as these speeding us all toward a brighter, greener world.
