About Mitsubishi i-Miev

The Mitsubishi i-Miev is an all-electric rear-wheel drive hatchback. It came out in 2015. Mitsubishi stopped making the Mitsubishi i-Miev in 2018.

The Mitsubishi i-Miev has a 16 kWh battery pack, allowing it to travel up to 63 mi on a single charge. The car has an average efficiency of 23 kWh per 100 miles (or 230 Wh/mile) — ranked №657 out of 662 electric vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Mitsubishi i-Miev achieves a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 15.5 seconds (placing it at №654 among 662 electric vehicles) and attains a maximum speed of 81 mph.

Its powertrain provides a power output of up to 49 kW (66 hp) and a torque of 145 lb-ft.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Mitsubishi i-Miev is 57–69 miles (ranked №657 out of 662 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

Plan your trips using the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Mitsubishi i-Miev in the USA is equipped with a CHAdeMO charging port. You can charge it conveniently at home using a standard outlet, or utilize any public AC charging station with the appropriate cable. However, the car's built-in charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging speed to 3.7 kW, which translates to roughly 14 miles of range added per hour.

For faster charging, use DC fast-charging stations. The Mitsubishi i-Miev supports a maximum DC charging rate of 50 kW, but it's important to note that battery temperature and current charge level can affect the actual charging speed you'll experience.

How big is it? What are the dimensions (length, width, height)?

Here are the dimensions and weight for the Mitsubishi i-Miev:

  • Length: 136.8 in
  • Width: 58.1 in (including side mirrors) or 58.1 in (excluding side mirrors)
  • Height: 63.4 in

  • Curb weight: 2425 lbs (weight of the empty car, no people or cargo)
How much cargo space does it offer? Does it have a front trunk?

The rear cargo area of the Mitsubishi i-Miev provides 5.9 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are upright (ranked №608 out of 662 electric vehicles).

Folding these seats down unlocks a maximum cargo capacity of 30.4 cubic feet (ranked №608 out of 662 electric vehicles).
