Step 3: Schedule an inspection of your home’s electrical system performed by our affiliated trained experts to make sure that it can efficiently charge your new 100% electric-powered Mitsubishi i.
Step 4: As the anticipated delivery date for your vehicle approaches, a Mitsubishi representative will contact you to confirm your vehicle’s features and color choice, along with confirming your final sales price (your $299.00 deposit will be applied to the final price of your car at this time).
