A trial of the first mass-produced new-generation electric vehicle to come to New Zealand was launched last month by Mitsubishi Motors NZ and Meridian Energy.
It’s the first joint venture in New Zealand between car company and an electricity supplier and its goal is to get New Zealanders excited about electric vehicles so we are one of the first countries to adopt them once they go into mass production, says Meridian CEO Tim Lusk.
The iMiEV is four-door hatchback with driving range of up to 160 kilometres and fuel costs that are about one third that of petrol vehicle. Few prototypes are available outside Japan and the evaluation programme will run until late this month with demonstrations being held around the country.
