Mitsubishi i-Miev... the second pure electric car from a major automaker this century. But with only 63 miles range, making it back and forth, from home to work, might be a problem fpor most. Mitsubishi prices the base i-Miev low enough to make it a consideration over the Nissan Leaf, however, take the higher trim and thrown in the Premium option package, and the price rapidly becomes equivalent.
Fiat 500 "Elettra." If the Mini Cooper had a cute little sister, this would be it. (Picture does not do justice; it's wearing a disguise.) Smaller, yes, but not a hideous little sh!tbox like the Smart, Think, or Mitsubishi offerings. Downside: this car does not officially exist, and we've been burned before (*koff*Mini E*koff*).
