2012 Mitsubishi i

An increasing number of electric cars are coming to market but the Mitsubishi i has a trump card up its electrified sleeve: it's the least expensive pure electric car you can buy. The Mitsubishi i can travel an EPA-estimated range of 62 miles per charge and can hit an 80 mph top speed. With just enough practicality for daily driving this little 4-seater is an intriguing new option for early adopters on a budget.
