Mitsubishi i MiEV - click above for high-res image gallery

Mitsubishi has increased predicted production rates for the i MiEV but there's still a question if supply will be able to meet demand for the electric jellybean. Company officials briefed us on the global strategy during the New York Auto Show last month, and now we know a few more details about how things will play out in the UK. 50 of the all-electric city cars will be headed to the UK this November, and another 150 are supposed to reach the country by the first half of 2010. According to Register Hardware, the car will cost about as much or a little more in the UK than it will in Japan (where it will sell for $30,000): somewhere between £20,000 and £25,000 (which converts to around $30,323 - $37,905). As previously stated, the price includes the battery pack.
