Mitsubishi will commence European sales of its new-generation i-MiEV EV

Article by Christian A., on January 20, 2011

Mitsubishi Motors Corp. said in a statement that it will commence European sales of its new-generation i-MiEV EV, which the carmaker started producing in October 2010. Mitsubishi told Automotive News Europe that about 200 units have now been sent to dealers in 15 countries around Europe.

After local incentives in France, the basic model will cost EUR29,970 ($40,172). Mitsubishi said that in other countries where no such incentives exist, it targets a range of EUR33,000 to EUR35,000 depending on tax system and market situation in each country.

It revealed that new features added to the i-MiEV for the European market include electronic stability control, a different front and rear bumper design and a re-arranged center stack for an improved interior feel.

Mitsubishi also claimed that i-MiEV can be driven for 150km (about 93 miles) on a single electric charge. It expects to extend the model to other markets, including Serbia, Finland, Slovenia and Turkey in the near future.

The automaker also makes the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero EVs for French carmaker PSA/Peugeot-Citroen SA. Mitsubishi presently produces all three models at its factory in Mizushima, Japan. The Japan-spec i-MiEV has been on sale since 2009. [via autonews - sub. required]
