Japan: Mitsubishi champions $10,000 electric-car subsidy

JAPANESE car maker Mitsubishi wants the Federal Government to reward buyers who opt to buy for the company’s new electric car.

An electric vehicle buyer would be recompensed around $10,000 if the Federal Government accepts a subsidy scheme proposed by Mitsubishi Australia.

But whether the scheme is accepted or rejected by the Rudd Labor government, Mitsubishi will press ahead with its plan to be the first major brand to sell an EV in Australia, planning to launch the plug-in i-Miev in 2010.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia president Rob McEniry said “it would be an absolute shame” if government did not accept the scheme, which will be formally presented early in 2010.

“If it means the customer has to pay more and we have less cars in Australia then so be it, but we will bring the car in.”
