Mitsubishi Electric Car Called 'Wave of the future'

San Bernardino Mitsubishi recently allowed members of the public to test drive its new all-electric vehicle the i-MiEV at the San Bernardino Auto Center. 

The battery-powered i-MiEV, which is being rolled out across America, can be charged by plugging into a wall outlet. Customers who purchase the i-MiEV are also eligible for a $7,500 tax credit, according to Mike Graeber, general manager.

Drivers were impressed with their test vehicles. Jesus Nolasco of Highland rated it at 97 percent compared to other electric vehicles.

"I like it because it's all electric and it gets about 70 miles per charge," Nolasco said.

Victor Ramos drove from Orange County to test the i-MiEV and gave it rave reviews.

"I am very excited, this is something that a lot of people should look at. It's the wave of the future. I love the fact that I don't have to go into a gas station." said Ramos, who spends $100 per week on gas.

"Mitsubishi is a company that prides itself on developing leading automotive technology," said Cliff Cummings, owner of the San Bernardino Auto Center. "The i-MiEV shows the company is supplying the increasing demand for alternative fuel vehicles."
