Mitsubishi Motors in the UK support the Mayor of London and Transport for London in the fight to reduce CO2 emissions.
Mitsubishi is happy to be supporting the launch of Source London, Boris Johnson's scheme to introduce electric charging points across London. Developed in conjunction with Transport for London, the scheme will provide over 1300 public charging points by 2013.
Source London is part of the Mayor's plan for London to become the electric vehicle capital of Europe, in-line with the commitment to improve air quality with the introduction of low and zero emission transport.
Launched in Japan in July 2009, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV was the first pure Electric Vehicle available to world markets in regular series production.
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK's Director of Sales & Marketing, Toby Marshall said: "Mitsubishi Motors in the UK support the Mayor of London and Transport for London in the fight to reduce CO2 emissions. Electric vehicles such as the Mitsubishi i-MiEV are now an affordable, viable mode of transport and with infrastructure provided by schemes like Source London, implementing a strategic network of charging points, means that electric vehicles are at last becoming a reality. Such schemes will help eliminate 'range anxiety' by giving electric vehicle owners the confidence that they will never be far from a charging point in London."
Customers can purchase a Mitsubishi i-MiEV from one of 13 national Mitsubishi EV Sales Centres across the UK, with two based in London, with a lead time of 10 days for a standard vehicle. An interior and exterior bespoke accessory pack for the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is also available now.Published 26 May 2011
