Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Car On Sale in Australia

Mitsubishi i MiEV Mitsubishi Australia have released the pricing for their i MiEV electric car. In the ACT the car will cost $51,450 drive-away. This is three times the price of a compact petrol powered car, such as the the Suzuki Alto I purchased. It makes the iMeiEV impractical in terms of cost and benefits for the environment. An electric car has zero tail pipe emissions, but when recharged from fossil fuel sourced electricity, it causes carbon emissions. Overall emissions would be lower by buying a cheaper petrol car and spending the savings on other carbon reduction technology.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV Driveaway Pricing

Due to variations in dealer and government statutory charges from one state to another the driveaway price of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV also varies accordingly. The below prices are the maximum you will pay for a standard vehicle at the appointed Mitsubishi i-MiEV dealers for cars sold and registered in the same state.
