Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Car to Go Global

We recently covered the i-MiEV by Mitsubishi, a small urban electric car with a top speed of 130 kph (81 mph) and a range of 130 km (81 miles) or 160 km (99 miles), depending on the battery pack. TreeHugger readers who left comments seemed to like it, and we do too.

That's why we're excited to learn that Mitsubishi is planning to "bring its i MiEV electric vehicle to mature world markets," which means Japan, North-America and Europe according to the company presentation. Emphasis will be put on Japan, as usual, but for once it won't be the only market that gets a cool new technology. ::Mitsubishi Motors Unveils New Mid-Term Business Plan; i MiEV Goes Global
