Last Monday, Sam pointed us to an Automotive News article reporting that Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko announced that the automaker would begin selling electric cars in the U.S. However, in a request for comment, CNNMoney.com received an email response from Mitsubishi spokesman Dan Irvin saying that the report was incorrect. It said, "Please note that contrary to the Automotive News story of earlier this week, there is currently no plan to sell this car in the U.S."

Automotive News' report also stated that a possible hybrid version of the car may hit U.S. shores in the short-term. Irvin's response made no mention of the hybrid.
