David, You mentioned the battery had to be brought to the correct temperature before charging. Did you account for that power use in your measurements? If not, that could be large portion of it.

The gas versions of the 'i' and the smart fortwo were similarly priced in the UK. The base price of 2013 smart fortwo electric drive is $25K. If Mitsubishi wanted to be competitive, the price for the 2013 'i' would be closer to $25K than 30K. The smart has a bigger battery and a more powerful motor as well.

From smart Canada, "In spring 2013, the smart fortwo electric drive will go on general sale in Canada, MSRP from $26,990 (coupé) and $29,990 (cabriolet)." That's the price before rebates. Wheego is going to be crushed financially.
