The i-MiEV's shortcomings start with its 60-mile range, which could be beaten by a carefully driven Chevy Volt, a car that isn't even a pure EV. It seats only four, its interior is sparse and offers few amenities, it's uncomfortable, odd-looking, and takes 20 hours to charge.
What's New for 2017
The 2017 i-MiEV rolls into the new year unchanged from 2016.
