Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. recently announced that its 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric-powered production vehicle not only receives an expanded standard equipment package but also sees a price reduction of $6,130 over the 2012 model.

The 2014 model year Mitsubishi i-MiEV ES model, which includes CHAdeMO DC quick charge port, battery warming system and heated side view mirrors, starts at $22,995 MSRP. After factoring in the federal tax credit of $7,500, the net MSRP of the 2014 i-MiEV could drop down to only $15,495. With the help of the California state EV financial incentive of up to $2,500, residents of the Golden State could pay as low as $12,995.

The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV also boasts a much more comprehensive standard equipment package. Newly added items that are now standard equipment at no charge to the consumer include: driver and front passenger heated seats; rear door speakers; 8A/12A switchable Level 1 charging cable; charge port lamp; leather-covered steering wheel and shift knob; passenger-side vanity mirror with lid; numerous decorative color/trim upgrades; and aluminum wheels.
