Mitsubishi Motors UK is the first company in Europe to be showcasing the fast charge function of the all-electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV city car.
The fast charger, supplied by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), allows the Mitsubishi i-MiEV to recharge from flat to eighty per cent full in just 30 minutes.
The charger's key specification includes:
You can already commute from Brighton to Central London on a daily basis in the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, but the option to quick charge at motorway service areas and superstore car parks gives this multi award winning city car even more scope for longer journeys and greater convenience for the end user.
The average daily journey in the UK, however, is estimated to be less than 30 miles, so vehicle owners can already use their three-pin socket domestic supply, which costs less than a Pound for a full charge. Those with a longer commute can easily 'refill' at their workplace before the journey home.
Managing Director, Lance Bradley commented "the fast charge function will revolutionise the way people think about the practicalities of Electric Vehicles. This is particularly significant with the launch of the Plugged in Places initiative by the Department for Transport, which is seeking to accelerate the implementation of the UK's charging infrastructure".
