Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited President and CEO, Genichiro Nishina, announced the official pricing of Australia’s first publically mass-production EV today.

Mr Nishina said sub-$50,000 recommended retail price represented a 22.5 percent reduction compared with the previous model, which was only available to select groups on $63,000 lease plans.

Mitsubishi gave the Australian press its first look at the 2012 model year i-MiEV last week, apparently on the back of a “large number of public enquiries” into the vehicle’s launch.
