Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 1 (Yazaki - SAE J1772)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 7h30m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 4h45m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 4h45m 12 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 4h45m 12 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 4h45m 12 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
CHAdeMO
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CHAdeMO (50 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 21 min 110 mph
CHAdeMO (100 kW DC) 40 kW † 30 kW † 21 min 110 mph
This vehicle does not support Autocharge
This vehicle does not support Plug & Charge

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Autocharge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations.

Plug & Charge: allows for automatic initiation of a charging session at supported CCS charging stations in accordance with ISO 15118.

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Mitsubishi i-MiEV

No longer available

This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV was available from November 2015 until July 2018. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

Pricing

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV had an On The Road Price (OTR) of £28,554. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV was eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is £24,054.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is 47 kW (63 hp). The maximum torque is 145 lb-ft. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 15.9 seconds. The top speed is 81 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV has a total capacity of 16 kWh. The usable capacity is 14.5 kWh (estimate). A range of about 55 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 35 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 85 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 1 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 4 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 7 hours 30 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CHAdeMO connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 40 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 30 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 35 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is about 264 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 153 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 414 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 171 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.

Preceding model

The model shown on this page is the successor of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, which was available to order from January 2011 until November 2015. The previous model was similar price, had 5 mi less range, same acceleration and was 10% less energy efficient.
