Estonian government offiicials not exactly gung-ho over Mitsubishi i-MiEV
Out of the 507 zero-emissions i-MiEVs in Estonia, only 336 were claimed by municipal workers. The application round to secure one of the government's i-MiEVs ended September 3, but low interest means that 171 of the electric hatchbacks remain unclaimed. Merle Ploompuu, project manager at Estonia's Ministry of Social Affairs, says municipalities doubt the vehicle's ability to function in harsh winter conditions.
So, next spring, Estonia will hold another application round to try and get the remaining i-MiEVs into driver's hands. Perhaps with the spring thaw, municipalities will be more willing to try out the pint-sized electric.
