Mitsubishi i-MiEV now priced ridiculously low at $22,995, before incentives



The Mitsubishi i-MiEV has long be the Spartan contender in the US plug-in vehicle scene. It's basic electric transportation with a low-ish price tag. If you don't want any frills with your zero-emission car, the i was the way to go.

The i started its sales life in 2011 with a $27,990 price tag, but that was jacked up by $1,135 a few months later because of "unforeseen changes in market conditions." Even with the increase, the i was on the lower end of the available EV price list and there were times when the Mitsubishi i was an even better electric bargain. Earlier this year, some dealers put $10,000 rebates on the hood, but that wasn't a national program.

2013, though, was the year for plug-in vehicle price drops, with the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt both losing thousands from their MSRPs. So, it really shouldn't come as a surprise that the i is also shedding dollars: Mitsubishi has announced that the 2014 i will starts at a price that's $6,130 less than the outgoing 2012 model. The new, pre-incentive price? $22,995. Factor in the $7,500 federal tax credit and you can be looking at a brand new EV for $15,495.

To go along with the price drop, Mitsubishi is adding many standard features, making the plain car a little less difficult to enjoy. Heated front seats, a charge port lamp, leather steering wheel and "numerous decorative color/trim upgrades" should make the i more comfortable. On the technology front, a Chademo DC quick charge port and a battery warming system should help with range questions. You can see a full list of upgrades in the press release below.

Oh, and the company is now calling the i the i-MiEV in the press release, so we should assume that shortened name is finished, then?
