Buy my i, but why?

I've been enjoying the little i for a month now, and have put just below 1000 miles on 'er (including one week of zero use due to an ice storm). At that rate, just running errands and commuting at an average of 47 miles per day, i'd be on track for 17,000 miles per year! Pretty impressive for a grocery-getter. That's exactly the mission i and Mitsubishi intended for the i, but i want more... With the Electric Highway rapidly becoming a reality (DC Level III charging stations up and down Interstate 5 in CA, OR, WA and even BC), i'd really feel left out to have a car not capable of ChadeMo quick-charging for the odd excursion to Seattle.
SO, the little i-car is on the block, available for purchase to anyone, whether down the block or across the pond. I'm hoping that a cordial Canadian, a comely Carribean creature, or even a chilly Chicagoan who otherwise wouldn't have local opportunity to purchase this vehicle for many moons yet will step forward. I'm no tax advisor, but this may be a great opportunity for someone with less than $7500 in federal tax liability, such as a retiree or a nonprofit organization to get a nearly-new and entirely proven EV for way less than dealer cost. Interested parties are encouraged to send questions (or offers) to jray3 at aol dot com. The car is also listed on EBay, item# 190635141816.
