Cadillac made a brave attempt to break into the luxury EV market. However, it didn’t pay off since car buyers ignored the ELR. The car was cool-looking and luxurious, but it came with a rather limited range, high price and strange marketing.
Also, Cadillac presented it at the same time when Tesla started producing the more practical and cooler Model S. Because of that, the ELR`s fate was sealed in just a couple of years on the market.
The days of big sedans are numbered. If you look at the modern car market, you will see that SUVs had taken over. But Kia learned that the hard way when they introduced the Cadenza a few years back.
Although the car was decent in all aspects, it was nothing special. In fact, it was even too boring for the average buyer to notice it. Also, the SUV craze killed it. After just a few years, the annual sales went below 10,000 examples, which was pathetic.
If you think that the Mirage is bad, just wait until you hear about the Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric model. Building an all-electric car was a smart move for Mitsubishi since this segment is promising. But if you want to sell cars, you have to offer something substantial to car buyers. However, Mitsubishi failed to do so.
The i-MiEV is painfully slow to recharge. In fact. it takes between seven and 21 hours to fully recharge the batteries, which is longer than other electric cars on the market. And when you do recharge it, the drive is terrible.
Also, the interior is outdated, cramped and not nice. The car, in general, is undeveloped, clumsy and painfully slow. In comparison to other electric cars in its class, like the Nissan Leaf, the i-MiEV looks like an unfinished prototype.
These are the top 25 cars you shouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole, for a myriad of reasons. While some are unsafe, others are just downright ugly. So, whatever you do, avoid these cars at all costs.
