Mitsubishi's annoucement of the "i MiEV" electric vehicle based on their "i" minicar has so far caused a bit of a stir. First, Automotive News reported that the car would be headed for the States. Then CNN said that the report was incorrect. Then, in a new article on Monday, AutoWeek, a sister publication of Automotive News, stated that Mitsubishi was still planning to bring the electric car to North America.
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."
