There are a number of battery electric cars to choose from on the market these days.

The new i, from mitsubishi is topping the EV charts these days...

The hot selling Mitsubishi electric car, the i-MiEV, looks like a cute gadget, but what it lacks in “esthetic toughness”, it more than makes up for in performance with an attitude.   

Years of dedicated work conducted by some of the best engineers in japan crafted the Mitsubishi i with safety, performance, and Eco friendliness in mind.  

The end result is a well-designed electric car that is both sleek, and crafty.  The engineers at Mitsubishi have a lot of pride invested in this electric car, and for good reason.
