Now that Mitsubishi Motors is moving forward with their partnership with the Nissan-Renault Alliance, much of their future lineup seems to be slated into alternative fuel and self-driving autonomous vehicles. With hybrid SUVs and possibly electric vehicles, one wonders what will come from the Japanese automaker next.

Mitsubishi i-Miev

The Mitsubishi i-Miev is one of a kind for Mitsubishi Motors. Their first all-electric vehicle that was also the world’s first highway capable electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi i-Miev has been doing well overseas. It came to the North American branch for several years, but due to sales was discontinued in 2017.

Being an all-electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi i-Miev is powered by an electric motor and a 16 kWh lithium-ion battery. The electric motor generates a max output of 49 kW and a max torque of 144 lb-ft of torque, and has a max speed of 80 mph. The Mitsubishi i-Miev also has a total driving range of about 100 miles. Able to be charged in four ways, the i-Miev is possibly the most convenient electric vehicle on the market. Using one of three electrical outlets, consumers can charge the i-Miev between 6 – 10 hours. Quick charging only takes 30 minutes.

Tax season comes to an end this weekend. Did you enjoy the tax credit for owning a hybrid or electric vehicle? Wait, you didn’t know about that? Might want to fire up TurboTax and give it another go, because if you bought a vehicle (all electric vehicles and some PHEVs) that qualifies for a federal tax credit, you can subtract that amount from the money you owe the federal government.

Tax Creditable Vehicles

Yes, you read that right. If you bought a hybrid or electric vehicle in 2016, you are eligible for a tax credit. We mentioned back in March the tax credit for hybrid, PHEV, and electric vehicles (EV), and in February we covered a tax deduction for a Ram truck. There are many other vehicles that can save you some money, and Miami Lakes Automall has a few of them available. Take a look at this list:

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid – $7,500

Kia Optima PHEV – $4,919

Mitsubishi i-Miev – $7,500

Chevrolet Volt – $7,500

Chevrolet Spark -EV  $7,500


Vincentric Names 2017 Mitsubishi i-Miev Best Value EV In America

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi i-MiEV Award Vincentric

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi i-MiEV Award Vincentric

The 2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV has been quite the surprising electric vehicle (EV) since it was released. This EV was the first of its class to handle driving on the highway, and recently it was awarded for its value in the American auto market. What’s most surprising is the Mitsubishi i-MiEV won an award among its EVs and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) competitors. How did the i-MiEV achieve such value?

Vincentric LLC is a company that collects and provides data, knowledge, and insight into the automotive industry and identifies what constitutes as value. Being that value can have bias or “sentimental value”, having an organization that goes by the facts and data holds more authority when measuring the value of an automobile. Recently, Vincentric announced the “Best Value in America” awards for the 2017 model year.

2017 Mitsubishi ModelsWhether you like crossovers, sedans, fuel efficient cars, or even electric vehicles, Mitsubishi has upgraded their models for the 2017 model year. So let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights for each Mitsubishi model.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

The Mitsubishi Lancer is a classic. Many of the Lancer trims are available with AWC or “all-wheel control” for better handling when on the road. The base trim is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine, granting it 148 horsepower. MIVEC is Mitsubishi’s patented VVT system, a design implemented for performance and fuel economy. The EPA for the Lancer is 27/34 mpg city/highway, so the proof is in the pudding.

Some of the other standard features are 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, the popular FUSE Hands-Free link system, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with rearview camera. You’re not going to see many base trim vehicles with a touchscreen and a camera. On the higher end trims, luxury features like leather trim, heated front seats, and premium audio systems are at your fingertips.

The starting MSRP is $17,795 and is backed by the best coverage from Mitsubishi, nearly doubling every other auto brand warranty on the market today.

Contacting all Florida electric and plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) drivers. Is your fuel low? Is your battery losing charge? Do not panic, we repeat do not panic! South Florida has realized the rise in PHEVs, hybrid, and electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, and has answered in kind. Especially in the Miami-Dade County area where close to 2.6 million people, and counting, own a hybrid or electric vehicle. With vehicles like the Mitsubishi i-Miev out on the road, and more eco-friendly cars being produced, one question comes to mind, “Where am I going to charge up?”
