2. Mitsubishi i-MiEV

If you think the Mirage is bad, just wait until you hear about Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV electric model. The move to introduce an all-electric car could have been profitable for Mitsubishi since this segment is so promising. Still, if you want to sell cars, you have to offer something substantial to buyers, yet Mitsubishi failed to do so. The main problem is that the i-MiEV is painfully slow to recharge.

In fact, it takes between seven and 21 hours to fully recharge them, which is forever compared to other electric cars. Also, the drive is terrible, while the interior is outdated, cramped, and uncomfortable. In general, the car 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.

1. Suzuki X-90

How about a two-seater, two-door SUV with compact dimensions and a removable T-Top? That may sound insane, but that is exactly what the Suzuki X-90 was when they unveiled it in 1995. Powered by a 95 HP, 1.6-liter four-cylinder, the X-90 came with a rear-wheel drive as standard.

Buyers could also opt for the all-wheel-drive model with limited interior and trunk space. They officially offered the car in America, so Suzuki managed to sell 7,000 copies. Still, neither the buyers nor the motoring press understood what Suzuki wanted to say with this model. It wasn’t an off-roader, yet it wasn’t a roadster. However, it was ugly and unappealing, which hurt the sales numbers badly.

These are 25 cars that should have never been built for a number of reasons, some even fatal. All of these cars are memorable, but not in a good way. If you ever have the chance to buy one of these cars, be sure to run in the opposite direction as fast as you can.
