i-MiEV vs. Mini E at the New York Show

Usually, at auto you will find abstract of electric cars that are so far nobody takes them This year at the New York Show, companies like Mini, Think, and Amp Motorworks are the regular programming by providing and public test drives of capable electric vehicles.  In the auto show, electric like the Mini E and the i-MiEV are on the road, leased to select markets and certain fleet and patrons.

The electric vehicle drive track is in the EV Pavilion at the of the bottom floor, but it will be a crowd pleaser when the show opens up to the public 2-11.  When I arrived, 2 electric vehicles, the Mitsubishi and the Mini E, were circling the track.  I had to sign my life on some contract that them of any responsibility for any bodily I might inflict on myself I played Dukes of Hazard the EVs. They also me swear not to go take it over 15

  It was an indoor go kart track, all.  Then I was ready to some electric powered

Ready for Action

First up was the E.  This mighty mouse has a amount of power, 200 HP, and that is a 100% torque electric so it really picks up.  an electronically regulated top speed of 95 and a 150 mile range (told 100 by the oddly, perhaps realistically), car can get you anywhere you need to go, fast.

Here is what I didn t I sat in the driver s seat, looked and saw this:

This is about high, right behind the seat.  It is the battery pack.  Not is this a two-seater, but it is a two-seater the storage space of a Vespa.

  I the Mini E s practicality watching groups load up the 5-passenger i

Moment of truth.

I took the car out of following the instructions of the Mini in the passenger seat.  No lurch.  The car not lurch forward in drive your typical ICE vehicle.  you get moving, drives much a car in first gear all the time, it is very torque-ee.

  You accelerate, let off the gas (electricity) and you rapidly because of the strong regenerative I had heard about this an issue with the Mini E, so it was much what I expected.  It me wonder if the big sacrifice in momentum is the electricity regained.

Anyway the car great on the miniature straightaway.  I love to see what the Mini E do on an interstate on-ramp instead of an track.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV

I am still uncomfortable pronouncing one aloud (i Meeve or i Me-ehv).

But I am picking this one as the winner in EV battle.  Here s why:


Yes, this is a equipped, four door EV.  The cabin was so spacious, I not believe they fit a lithium ion in there, which is hidden under the car .

This will not with the Mini E on the track It will get you 0-60 in 13 seconds, has a top of 80 mph, and has a 100 mile range.  But I not even fit my backpack into the E with another person in the

  I could get married, have a kids, and take them all to practice in the i-MiEV.  The i-MiEV such good use of the space it and is just smartly designed for it is, a family commuter vehicle.

Not only is the i MiEV more but it rides more comfortably The car creeps forward in drive a traditional vehicle, and the regenerative is much more natural.  The car of coasts when you lift off of the

  The interior space and user drive make the i-MiEV the in this EV showdown.

Anyone who to be in the area of New York City the few days should definitely to the Javits Center to get a first experience in these fascinating new vehicles that are becoming and more real every I ll leave you with a rough I took of some of the action on the later in the day:
