Mitsubishi i-MiEV Canada Pricing Set at CAD32,998
In the Canadian market, the EV will be available in the global form and not the longer and wider US-only i version. There will be two trim levels, with the standard one offering stuff you’d expect to find in a regular car (air con, heating for the driver’s seat and keyless entry). Meanwhile the premium package adds bigger wheel, a better stereo and navigation, all for CAD 35,998 or the equivalent of USD36,972.
Last year, Mitsubishi brought over a fleet of 50 i-MiEVs to Canada for testing. The “Drive coast to coast for less than it cost to run your fridge last year” message on Mitsubishi Canada’s website is a reference to the Clean Across Canada Tour that Mitsubishi from last year.
"We are very proud to be leading the way to a greener and more sustainable future by developing environment-friendly vehicles, fueled by clean, renewable energy," said Koji Soga, president and CEO of MMSCAN. "Mitsubishi Motors is a leader in electric car development and the i-MiEV represents the pinnacle of our green technologies. In the same sense, Hydro-Québec and the City of Boucherville are demonstrating their environmental leadership by participating in this unique initiative."
