The Clean Across Canada Tour kicked off in Cape Spear, located on the Avalon Peninsula near St John's, Newfoundland, and will continue for 28 days until the lone i-MiEV reaches Vancouver, British Columbia. The i-MiEV is expected to travel 75 miles per day and its progress can be tracked by clicking here.
Mitsubishi Motors organized the tour in order to prove one simple point: for Canadians, "a zero-emissions vehicle is a viable reality for all of their city driving needs." Koji Soga, chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Motor Sales Canada, spoke of the importance of the tour, stating:
Hat tip to Keith and Eli!For us, the Clean Across Canada Tour is our way of showcasing the technology and capability of this no compromise urban vehicle. The i-MiEV represents our values of renewable production, clean air technology, alternative fuel and conservation as represented by our tagline 'Drive@Earth'. These are the values that guide our company and they were the values we held close in the development of the i-MiEV.
