|Mitsubishi Motors to Launch MiEV Power BOX 1500 Watt Power Feeder for its Electric Vehicles|
Tokyo, March 9, 2012 - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced today that it will bring to market on April 27 the new MiEV power BOX power feeder which is capable of supplying large amounts of electrical power from an electric vehicle (EV). Supplied by a Mitsubishi Group affiliate, the MiEV power BOX will be offered as a dealer option for the company's i-MiEV *1 and MINICAB-MiEV EVs and will carry a manufacturer's recommended tax-inclusive price of 149,800 yen.
*1: Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle
The MiEV power BOX is an adapter that plugs into the i-MiEV or MINICAB-MiEV's quick charging connector and is capable of supplying up to 1500 watts of AC electricity from the power stored in the vehicle's drive battery. It has been designed mainly to power household electrical appliances either when away from home or in an emergency. When connected to a fully-charged 16.0 kWh battery-equipped model the MiEV power BOX can supply 1500 watts of power for between five and six hours, equivalent to the amount consumed by an average Japanese household in a single day.
Much attention is currently being focused on the storage capabilities of high capacity EV batteries as a power source for use in major disasters and other emergencies. This comes at a time when solar power, wind power, and other recyclable energy sources are being promoted and the near-future implementation of "smart grids" which will allow the more effective use of electrical power. More and more people are looking to the EV both in terms of its traditional role of addressing environmental issues and also as a means of addressing ever-growing pressures on the demand and supply of energy. To meet these expectations MMC is pushing forward research and development into related technologies, one of which is the MiEV power BOX.

|Mitsubishi Motors' i-MiEV Chosen as Canada's Most Fuel Efficient Subcompact Vehicle|
Tokyo, February 24, 2012 - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation's (MMC) 100% electric-powered zero-emission i-MiEV was officially recognized yet again for its fuel efficiency in another country, this time Canada. The i-MiEV was chosen by Canada's Ministry of Natural Resources (NRCan), as the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the subcompact class. When comparing the i-MiEV against vehicles chosen by NRCan*1 in other classes, data shows the i-MiEV is Canada's most fuel-efficient car among them all.
Shin Fujioka, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada Inc., (MMSCAN) received NRCan's 2012 ecoENERGY for Vehicles Award for the subcompact class at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on February 16, 2012.
"This is a great honor for the i-MiEV," said Mr. Fujioka. "This achievement speaks to what the marketplace needs as we strive to improve our environment and protect our planet's future. We are heartened by the Canadian government's findings that the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is the right vehicle for the Canadian marketplace."
"Mitsubishi's approach to technology and addressing environmental concerns is paramount," he continued, "and it is encouraging to see the excitement the i-MiEV has generated for the future of electric vehicles over the past few years."
The list of high-profile awards for the i-MiEV keeps growing. The all-electric, zero-emission i-MiEV was chosen as the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the United States last year by the United States' Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)*2, thanks to its excellent EPA-rated fuel efficiency rating of 112 MPGe. Recently, the i-MiEV was named as the "Greenest Vehicle" by the United States' ACEEE non-governmental organization*3.
