Today Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC), in cooperation with its New Zealand subsidiary Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand (MMNZ), will show the zero-emissions i MiEV*1.
MiEV witch meens Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle, is the new vision of Mitsubushi for the electric vehicle.
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is currently working to bring the i MiEV electric vehicle to market in Japan during 2009. Because vehicles in New Zealand have their steering wheels on the right side of the car, the same as Japan, MMC will consider the country a likely ( ex. UK ) candidate for early introduction of its zero-emissions electric vehicle if market conditions prove favorable.
Mitsubishi Motors and Meridian will launch a promotional tour of the country sometime after February 2009. Representatives from national and local government will be given the chance to drive the car, in order to spur discussions about possible subsidies as well as developments in infrastructure and marketing considerations.
