The keys to Canada’s first fully electric Mitsubishi car were handed over to a Winnipeg man on Thursday, at the start of winter.

“We have the cleanest [hydroelectric] power in Canada, probably in the world,” said Ross Redman, who picked up his new car at the Waverley Mitsubishi dealership.

“That’s what I want to use for fuel in my car.”

Redman, an electronics technician, said he originally purchased the i-MiEV — pronounced “eye-meeve” — for its high-torque performance, but now he is also motivated to save the environment.
