Mitsubishi Motors Japan has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with China Motors, Mitsubishi Corporation Taiwan and the Hsinchu County government in the island nation's northwestern region. The main focus of the MoU is to promote the use of plug-in vehicles in Taiwan.

To that end, the Hsinchu County government will deploy Mitsubishi i-MiEVs taxis at the Taiwan High Speed Rail line's Hsinchu Station. In addition, the government will analyze the demand and marketability of plug-in vehicles and assess the need for tax incentives and charging stations.

Since launching in Japan, the i-MiEV has slowly rolled out internationally to Hong Kong, Australia, Costa Rica, Chile and 19 countries throughout Europe. This fall, Mitsubishi's plug-in hatch will hit dealerships in the U.S. and Canada.
