    The i-MiEV is a 100% electric car with zero CO2 running emissions. It runs on a lithium-ion battery pack, reaches a speed of 130 kilometers per hour, and can drive 150 kilometers on a full six hour charge. The car is tiny and fits into very small spaces, yet still manages to sit four people.

    In the United States, the i-MiEV is expected to cost around $20,000 USD after a $7,500 USD tax break, but no word yet on the Costa Rican price tag.
