Electric Mitsubishi could hit UK roads in 2010

Mitsubishi is considering whether to bring its i-MiEV electric city car to the UK.

The announcement follows construction of a new factory in Japan which intends to make one million batteries for 10,000 of the electric vehicles a year.

Mitsubishi has prioritized the development of the i-MiEV for introduction to the Japanese domestic market in 2009 and has confirmed its plans for introduction to Europe in 2010.

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has requested that a proportion of the first 2,000 right hand drive units be allocated to the UK to support a launch in London in 2009. This is currently being seriously considered.
