Mitsubishi have announced the delivery of Norway’s 1,000th i-MiEV new generation electric vehicle. In Norway, electric car purchasers can receive substantial incentives and since the launch of the i-MiEV in Norway it has maintained the top spot in total sales volume of compact vehicles.
In the UK the Mitsubishi i-MiEV was named Electric Vehicle of the Year at the GreenFleet awards; it is the second time the Mitsubishi i-MiEV has won the award. Compared to petrol cars the i-MiEV is extremely inexpensive to operate. There is no road tax and it costs as little as £1.05 to charge the car overnight, which gives it enough juice for around 93 miles. With petrol prices in the UK at a record high, that’s potentially an enormous saving.
The i-MiEV is perfect for urban driving, deliberately designed as a small, compact, city car with the ability to nip in and out of traffic and park in the tightest of spaces, thanks to its instant electric power delivery and compact, nimble driving style. With an electric vehicle like the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, customers need not compromise in any area.
