Green car loans seekers may be keen on Mitsubishi i-MiEV after trial
Eco-friendly car loans seekers might be interested in the Mitsubishi i-MiEV after it was part of the UK's largest public electric vehicle trial.
According to the manufacturer, the motor "proved its reliability and usefulness" during the process, entitled Cabled (Coventry And Birmingham Low Emission vehicle Demonstrators).
The initiative is the eighth largest of its kind taking place as part of the Technology Strategy Board's £25 million Ultra Low Carbon demonstrator programme.
Last December, the process involving 25 of the Mitsubishi electric automobiles began in Birmingham.
Automotive expert Quentin Willson, who was part of the trial, said the car is a forerunner of transport evolution that will go on to change the world.
He added: "At last here's an electric car that doesn't look like a church pew, seats four, does 80 mph and costs less than a quid to charge."
Last month, the brand revealed its iMiEV is being used by the mayor of London Boris Johnson to promote the Big Smoke's electric vehicle charging network.
