Mitsubishi leads charge with electric cars in Australia

The cost of electric cars will halve in two years as production ramps up to meet demand, Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko said on 2 June as he announced that the first batch of battery-powered vehicles for Australia would go on sale next month.

The car, called the iMiev, has been undergoing fleet trials around Australia for months and Masuko said Mitsubishi wanted to take a lead with the technology. "This announcement will ensure that we will be number one in bringing the electric vehicle to Australia," he said.
