First Production Electric Powered Vehicle Crosses Canada

By GreenCompany | September 17, 2010

As part of the Mitsubishi-Clean Across Canada Tour, the production Mitsubishi i-MiEV, an all electric powered car finished the cross-country tour when it arrived in Victoria this week. Back on August 17, 2010 it initially left St John’s Newfoundland. In all it traveled some 7,500 kms and showed to the Canadian consumer market that electric powered cars are here to stay. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV became the first production vehicle powered solely by electricity to be driven across this great nation.

Mitsubishi Motor Sales President and CEO said of the achievement, “During the journey from Cape Spear to Victoria the Mitsubishi Clean Across Canada Tour demonstrated to Canadians that the innovative i-MiEV zero emission car travels far and charges fast; it is the car of tomorrow…today.”

The i-MiEV zero emission car has been available to consumers in Japan for over a year and will soon become available to car buyers in Europe, Australia, and Hong Kong. The vehicle will have a range of up to 120 km making it ideally suited to urban needs.

Powered by high capacity lithium-ion batteries the i-MiEV utilizes a small efficient electric motor and it sports a three-way charging system to deliver the best possible range for the charge while offering users a pleasant noise-free drive.

i-MiEV features the following:

Mitsubishi hasn’t yet said what the cost will be once it is available in Canada.
