The automotive producer will supply 507 units of the vehicle to the countries’ authorities, with this being the largest fleet sale since the EV was launched.
So, let’s see how many times Mitsubishi uses “CO2” in two paragraphs: “This provision is brought by the agreement Mitsubishi Corporation has concluded with the Estonian Government to purchase 10 million tons of emissions rights. With carrying out this GIS, the Estonian government plans to use these i-MiEVs in public facilities (in the field of social welfare) as part of its aim at realizing the widespread use of electric vehicles throughout the country.
"The Estonian Government expects to utilize i-MiEV for CO2 reductions in the country, thanks to its zero CO2 emission characteristics while driving. MMC will also provide technical support to the Estonian Government in monitoring CO2 reductions effected by introducing i-MiEV. The 507 units will be shipped to Estonia by end of fiscal 2011.”
We have to explain that emissions trading is a method to control polution by stimultating companies to reduce their environmental footprint through economic incentives.
Returning to the story's starting point, we can tell you that we are not willing to let the company have its way. We’ve created a Facebook Cause in order to show Mitsubishi how many people disagree with its plans to murder the Evo. You can join our effort by clicking here.
