March 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced the commencement of new generation electric vehicle i-MiEV sales in Republic of Costa Rica, mainly to fleet customers such as government affiliates and electric companies.

This marks the first country to start sales of i-MiEV in Latin America. The launching ceremony was held in the capital city of San Jose on February 25th, with about 300 people attending the event including local MMC distributor VEINSA Co., local electricity company executives, and the President of Republic of Costa Rica.

The Costa Rican Government has been assertive in taking environmental initiatives, and aims to be a "carbon offset country" that emits zero CO2, by 2021. They have high hopes in using EVs as transportation tools to reduce CO2 emission, and will offer exemption of custom duty as part of the preferential treatment for EV purchasers.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV went on sale, mainly to fleet customers, (http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/fleet-and-used/fleet/...) in July of 2009. This was followed by the full launch in April 2010 to individual customers. In addition to high environmental performance and handling inherent of a compact car, (http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/microsites/welcometot...) the i-MiEV has been praised for its motive power, stability, quietness and comfortable ride.

After its launch in Japan, i-MiEV moved forward with sales to Hong Kong, Australia, and most recently Europe and will begin to sell its expanded model in the United States this fall.
