This EVTown Mitsubishi i-MiEV is similar to the one I saw at EVening of EVs event on Thursday January 26th 2012. The one at that event was white. During a recent trip to Normal Illinois to record electric car charging stations – I found three i-MiEVs parked in the Uptown Station Parking Deck.
I’d assume the silver and white i-MiEVs are city or State owned. I would guess they are owned or leased by the City of Normal. The glare that day stopped me from getting decent shots of inside the car.
I rode Amtrak Lincoln Service to get to Normal Uptown Station that day. Amtrak is located within the Multi Modal Transportation Center Uptown Station.
EVTown represents a broad-based effort to establish Bloomington-Normal, Illinois as a model electric vehicle community
CHAdeMO is the trade name of a quick charging method for battery electric vehicles
“Eaton Corporation has demonstrated a CHAdeMO-compatible DC Quick Charger recharging Mitsubishi iMiEV cars.”
Cost to Run a Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Vehicle: $233 a Year; $0.82 a Gallon ( equivalent per gallon cost since it doesn’t use gasoline )
