Watch us cruise around in Mitsubishi’s boxy electric iMiev for the latest episode of Green Overdrive. The car has been on the road in Japan for the last year, and will head to the U.S. in 2011. Because if it’s green, we’ll drive it!

Tesla’s Roadster may be the current belle of the EV car ball, but Mitsubishi’s pod-like iMiev could be the auto for the electric everyman (or woman). The iMiev has been sold in Japan for the past year and will be headed to the U.S. in 2011. Despite the upcoming competition from Nissan’s LEAF, GM’s Volt, or Fisker’s Karma, the iMiev could end up being one of the more low cost options in the U.S. at $35,000 a pop (and that cost doesn’t even factor in incentives).

Today on Green Overdrive, we step into the future to test drive the iMiev, and discover that good things do come in small packages.
