ALL NEW EPISODE! Fireball grabs the Mitsubishi iMiev with Matt Farah!

Ok, so Mitsubishi has an electric car called the iMiev. Although, not sure how to pronounce it, it’s a fun little car that I decided to bring to my buddy, performance car star and enthusiast MATT FARAH. Check out Matt’s site THE SMOKING TIRE, but watch the episode for some hysterical conversation about this car and be rest assured, it’s one of the best electrics out there.

When the cool doods and doodettes of Mitsubishi sent me this zero emissioned wonder… I had my doubts, but after a few days of tooling around Malibu up and down PCH, I began to try and think of ideas so as not to have to send it back. And although a $34K price tag seemed way out of the ballpark, it was settling to hear that this 112MPGe Raspberry Metallic lil’ rocket comes with a $7500 tax credit. Although, the base model is around $29K. So you could snag one for about $21K, and that’s pretty good if my math is right. And if you realize that you save $10K over five years in fuel costs, it makes a lot of sense for someone looking for a city car.

But instead of writing a whole book on this zipper, just watch the funny episode with Matt and I. The bottom line is that this car is fun, it’s got cool cup holders and awesome stereo/NAV that just makes people smile… even if this one did resemble an eggplant.
