The Mitsubishi i MiEV is gaining fans outside of Japan; it was well received at the New York Auto Show and many are hoping that the company will keep to its word and launch the small electric car globally. There's even a petition asking Mitsubishi to bring the EV to the US.
The nice folks at Autobloggreen have found Japanese commercials that are, as far as we know, running in Japan. The first two can be found here and the third one here. They're cheesy, but show the car in action and confirm what we already knew (14 hours full charge with 110V, 7 hours with 220, 30 minutes to 80% at charging stations, 160 km range). More captures from the videos after the jump.
