Mitsubishi prices all-electric i vehicle: $28,000

Mitsubishi announces pricing for its all-electric urban vehicle named, simply, "i."

Want a Smart car, but rather go all-electric?

Not content to let rivals play the electric vehicle game without it, automaker Mitsubishi announced on Friday pricing for its all-electric vehicle named simply "i."

The four-door car, which from first glance looks at home zipping around narrow downtown streets, will start at an MSRP of $27,990, or $20,490 after a $7,500 federal tax credit.

A few quick stats about the vehicle:

  • Speed-sensitive electric power steering
  • LED rear tail lamps
  • Driver seat heater
  • Electric air conditioning with micron filter
  • Remote keyless entry
  • On-board recharging system with 120V portable 8 amp charging cable
  • 4 speaker, 100-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3/WMA playback.

Upgrades include a DC quick charging port and a "cold zone" package that includes a Li-Ion battery warming system, as well as more pedestrian fare, such as leather, fog lamps and a bigger sound system.

The Mitsubishi i is available for pre-order now; the company says it will waive a home electrical inspection fee ($100) for the first 2,000 customers.
