Mitsubishi 100% electric-powered Mitsubishi i-MiEV has recently been named the symbolic 100,000th plug-in electric production vehicle sold in America "since the introduction of the latest generation of highway-capable plug-in vehicles some two years ago," according to the national plug-in electric vehicle advocacy group, Plug In America.
 
Plug In America recently held the #PIA100K contest to award a ClipperCreek Level 2 electric vehicle charging station to the lucky individual representing the approximate 100,000th plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicle delivery in the United States. Based on "sales data from recent reports," Plug In America determined that Rich Salmon of Grand Bay, Alabama, reached this important EV sales milestone when he purchased a brand-new Mitsubishi i-MiEV on May 16 of this year.
 
With a net value as low as $21,625*, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV all-electric 5-door achieves a remarkable EPA-rated 112 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) combined/126 MPGe city/99 MPGe highway and has an EPA estimated "real world" driving range of 62 miles (45% highway/55% city driving mix) and 98 miles (EPA LA4 range – mostly stop & go/city driving)
