Owner: Steve Lough, Seattle

Occupation: President emeritus, Seattle EV Association Car’s make and model: 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV SE

“I love my car because … its an all-electric Mitsubishi! We drop the “i” in i-MiEV and just call it “Mi-EV.” It’s quick, quiet, extremely maneuverable, and cheap as dirt to drive: 350 miles on $8 a month. I know; I have a separate watt meter. It’s the fancy model with nav, premium sound, DVD, CD, MP3, Bluetooth, heated seats and back-up camera. The automotive press gives it low marks all the time. Don’t know why. It’s roomier than the Fiat, Smart, Fit and Chev Spark. We LOVE its unique looks!”
