Mitsubishi i-MiEV becomes Australia's first EV
Mitsubishi Motors Australia (MMAL) announced its public launch at a press conference in Melbourne yesterday. Australian buyers will get the MY12 version, priced at £32,290 ($50,000), and the first models are expected in mid August.
Genichiro Nishina, MMAL's CEO and president said: 'Considering that about 95% of commuters in urban Australia travel less than 100 kilometres per day, the i-MiEV is an excellent real-world solution to help reduce the population’s environmental impact.
“Mitsubishi believes the future of electric vehicles is bright and we are proud to offer Australians the opportunity to purchase their own EV and make the choice towards a greener future.”
