Despite Mitsubishi's lengthy press release, there's just not much to say here other than that the automaker is confirming what we already knew – that it will begin offering its electric-powered i-MiEV in Australia this summer. According to the company, the i-MiEV will become the nation's first manufacturer-produced electric vehicle available to the general public when it hits dealer lots this July. Mitsubishi plans to ship at least 40 i-MiEVs to the land Down Under by the end of August. Mitsubishi Motors global president Osamu Masuko officially announced the entry of the i-MiEV into Australian market with these words:

Hat tip to Larzen!The i-MiEV has been attracting a lot of attention in Australia, and I am pleased to announce that we can now confirm additional vehicles will be arriving here in the next few months.
