Vroom, Vroom!

….this is what I’m talking about!! The new i-MIEV sport from Mitsubishi, which is actually supposed to be available in 2009, will go about 100 miles on a battery charge with a gas-powered motor kicking in after that. (Although I’m not a Mitsubishi fan considering their past enviro sins, I think I can forgive them enough to get behind this car!)
