Boucherville, Quebec – Mitsubishi’s Clean Across Canada electric vehicle tour reaches Montreal today, August 24, with the public invited to see the i-MiEV at Gabriel Mitsubishi, 4550 Saint-Jean Boulevard in Dollard-des-Ormeaux from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The car reached Boucherville yesterday, with Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada president and CEO Koji Soga driving it up to the Boucherville Town Hall. Over a three-year period, starting in December, Hydro-Quebec and the Town of Boucherville will test up to 50 all-electric Mitsubishi i-MiEVs under various conditions to assess charging performance, driving experience, and overall driving satisfaction.
The i-MiEV left Signal Hill in St. John’s, Newfoundland on August 17, and will travel 7,500 kilometres in 28 days to Vancouver. The car has covered some 2,135 kilometres so far.
Already sold in Japan, the i-MiEV will be introduced to the Canadian market at the end of 2011.
