Summary: Mitsubishi is set to throw its hat in the electric car ring with a new model called the "i". The vehicle is based on the i-MiEV currently sold in Japan and Europe. For American tastes the name was shortened to a single lower-case letter while the vehicle itself was lengthened and widened to meet American tastes and crash standards. The Mitsubishi i electric car will go on sale starting in the end of 2011 but Kelley Blue Book got an early test drive in Japan, an adventure retold in this video.
