The one point where the i-MiEV still excels is pricing, as its base price of $23,845 (delivery fees included) falls far below its competitors. Take into account the $7,500 federal tax break you get for buying this small EV, and you’re looking at a price tag just a tick over $16,000. At this low price, it’s no surprise that the standard features are pretty simple. They include:
- Level 3 DC quick-charge port
- 120-volt 8/12-amp portable charging cable
- Automatic headlights
- Fifteen-inch alloy wheels
- Heated front seats
- Six-speaker, 100-watt audio system
There is only one trim level available for the i-MiEV, and that’s the ES. What’s more, options are limited to just a Navigation Package ($2,000), a Cargo Package ($95), and an LED Illumination Package ($315).
