I drive this car every day about 60 miles per day and I've never run out of range. I used to spend $300/month on gas but now I have no gas costs. My electric bill has only increased about $20/month even with a full charge daily.
With more charging stations in the city I've been able to extend my range to 100+ miles by only spending about 5 -10 minutes at a level 3 quick charger.
My daily commute to work is 50 miles round trip which includes about 30 miles on the freeway. During my lunch break I drive 10 miles round trip to a fitness center to workout.
One of the most fun things about this car is the instant torque. I can zip around almost anybody on surface streets and comfortably cruise around 70mph on the freeway.
2012 Mitsubishi SE

I purchased my 2012 Mitsubishi i-Miev approximately 6 months ago. If you are in the market for an electric car and you regularly drive 60 miles or less per day this car is the best deal going.
I've driven my i-Miev during my work commute and for all other local errands since I got it and I love it! I charge it over night from a standard 110 volt outlet and it's ready to go each morning. Electricity is cheap, and I haven't been to a gas station in months.
Everything I could want in an EV

The cost of ownership is so low, I will never go back to regular gas-fueled vehicles again if it can be helped. My Miev not only gets me back and forth on my daily commute to work with mileage to spare, but it is so quiet to drive and when I push the accelerator pedal down, it gives a satisfying response for the size engine it has. In stop-n-go traffic, it gets even better mileage per charge than stated!
