    Full figures for 2012

    The i-MiEV seems to be on it's last leg, which is not really surprising given the price reductions on the Leaf, putting the starting price at USD39,600, while the i-MiEV is still at USD31,700. It's just not competitively priced. Also, it seems like Europe has run out of the iOn and C-Zero, so we probably won't see any more of those any time soon. Apart from that, not much seems to be happening, and I suppose not much will happen before the Model S arrives in a couple of months. The VW E-Up, BMW i3, Smart Electric Fortwo, Ford Focus Electric and Renault Fluence should follow shortly thereafter, which should really put some momentum behind the EV Sales. Right now, it's very much a one horse show.
