Electric Vehicle: Mitsubishi MiEV

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Dan took the Mitsubishi MiEV for a test drive. MiEV stands for Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle. They do make some gas versions, however the electric car is titled an I-MiEV. It has a range of 60 miles. You have to always be planning on when you'll get that next charge. There are three gears, D for Drive, E for Eco and B for Brake. D is obvious. E compensates for those with a "lead foot", accelerating the slowly. And B, is for those downhill rides kind of like driving in a low-gear to slow down your pace.
