G8 leaders will travel in Mitsubishi Motors electric vehicles at the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit in July.

Ten i-MiEV’s (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicles) will be used to transport visiting world leaders and will also be available for test drives, providing the heads of government with an insight into the practicality and environmental benefits of the i-MiEV.

“The i-MiEV is an ideal solution to carbon dioxide vehicle emissions, particularly when paired with renewable energy generation. Providing world leaders with the opportunity to experience the drive quality will reinforce Mitsubishi Motors’ commitment to environmentally friendly technology,” said MMNZ’s general manager of sales and marketing Peter Wilkins.

Due to be released on the Japanese market in 2009, the i-MiEV is the flagship of Mitsubishi’s ‘green’ vision and is undergoing fleet testing in Japan. US testing will follow later this year.

The i-MiEV’s motor outputs 47kW and 180Nm. It’s powered by a 16kWh lithium-ion battery pack providing 330V. It currently has a 160km range, 122km* more than the average daily journey.
