This is the Mitsubishi i-MiEV that passed me as I was recording the five Eaton Level 2 Charging Stations inside Uptown Station parking garage. I’m still not sure why none of the three i-MiEVs I saw that day were not plugged into a charging station. You’d figure you would always want to be plugged in – if possible – to keep the batteries topped of.
Maybe the driver of the one above didn’t want to get asked twenty questions or get recorded plugging his i-MiEV in.
