25th November, 2010

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced this week that it has reached a production 'milestone' of 5,000 units* of its i-MiEV electric vehicle (EV) at its Mizushima Plant as of 23rd November 2010.

MMC was first in the world to start production of a fully-fledged mass production EV with the i-MiEV in June 2009. The month after that MMC introduced the i-MiEV to the Japanese market, and has sold about 3,000 units to individuals and businesses nationwide (as of end October 2010). MMC also started left-hand drive European-spec i-MiEV production from October 2010, and is steadily proceeding with its global rollout of EVs.

Also, in fiscal year 2011, to further increase production volume with the introduction of the North American-specification i-MiEV, MMC plans to transfer the manufacture of the i-MiEV from the current commercial vehicle assembly line to the minicar assembly line for cars such as eK Wagon and i.

NOTE: * Does not include EV production for PSA Peugeot CitroŽn
