This isn’t the first time I have seen this Silver Mitsubishi i-MiEV. First time I came across this i-MiEV was when it was parked in Washington Park. i-MiEV are still fairly rare in Springfield Illinois – there are few driving around. The Nissan LEAF is definitely more popular in this town – it is in most cities. The LEAF seems to be the electric car of choice for those who can’t afford a Tesla.
The Gables is located less than a block away from the llinois Green Industry Association – which has a Voltec level 2 electric car charging station for public use. I’ve finally started seeing that station getting used. Recently I have seen a Black Mitsubishi i-MiEV and a Silver Nissan LEAF charging their cars at that location.
This isn’t the only local electric car repeat I have seen recently. I have come across the Isringhausen Nissan LEAF and a Silver Nissan LEAF – both of which I have recorded previously.
So far I have recorded Illinois electric car license plates 226 EL, 228 EL, 229 EL, 382 EL, 518 EL, 531 EL, 585 EL , 668 EL, 1216 EL and 236 EL.
