August 31, 2010 – Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Tokyo, Japan:

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will introduce the European-spec version of its i-MiEV 100% electric vehicle at the 2010 Paris Motor Show (“Mondial de l'Automobile 2010”) to be held at Paris Expo – Porte de Versailles in Paris, France from Thursday September 30th to Sunday October 17th (open to the general public from Saturday October 2nd).

A total of 12 vehicles (7 on press days) will be displayed at its stand in Hall 3 including:

· The recently introduced ASX (RVR in Japan) compact crossover equipped with MMC’s all-new “low impact” 4N13 diesel engine

· The Lancer Sportback (Galant Fortis Sportback in Japan) now featuring the same 150 ps 1.8 DiD engine

· The new Outlander 2.2 DiD mid-size crossover, whose 177 ps unit is a further derivative (4N14) of this same family of innovative diesel powerplants.

Concerning the European-spec i-MiEV, MMC plans to successively roll it out from December of this year in 14 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom) and further expand the European rollout from fiscal year 2011.

The price (includes car and batteries) of the European-spec i-MiEV will differ by country but will be set to around €33,000 – €35,000 (or equivalent) so that the final cost to the customer after government incentives (where applicable) remains under €30,000 (or equivalent) in a majority of the countries it is to be sold in.

Compared with the Japanese market version, the European-spec i-MiEV includes specific features such as:

· New design to the front and rear bumpers to meet EU regulations
· Rearranged centre stack in the instrument panel
· Improved interior comfort

Furthermore, safety – both active & passive - has been improved with the addition of Active Stability Control (ASC) as well as side and curtain airbags, all standard equipment.

To celebrate 40 years of electric development at Mitsubishi Motors, a further display in Hall 8 will present the 1989 Mitsubishi Minicab EV for the first time in Europe, as part of “The Incredible Collection” heritage show. More information on the i-MiEV: new-imiev.com.
