Mitsubishi Electric Car to Cost Less Than Nissan Leaf

LOS ANGELES—Mitsubishi Motors Co. will price its electric car due out in 2012 for North America at around $30,000, or about 10% less than the electric car made by Nissan Motor Co., the Leaf, the company said.

Mitsubishi is already selling a version of the car in Japan called the MiEV and has delivered about 4,000 this year so far. In the U.S., the car will be called the Mitsubishi I.

The car has a 16 kilowatt-hour battery, which is about 40% smaller than the Leaf’s battery and, according to company officials, is supposed to have a driving range of around 80 miles on a full charge. The U.S. version of the car will be wider than the Japanese model and have a bigger bumper to meet domestic crash standards.
