Mitsubishi has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Danish government regarding the popularization of its i-MiEV electric car in Denmark.
Under the MoU, the Danish government will consider introducing i-MiEVs into its fleet in or after 2011, conducting EV promotional activities and implementing EV infrastructure.
The Danish government, in order to reduce CO2 emissions in its country, is proactively implementing environmental conservation initiatives as national policy – a part of which are EV-related tax incentives – and approached Mitsubishi for cooperation in the popularization of EVs in Denmark.
Mitsubishi is already selling the i-MiEV in Japan and in Hong Kong. Mitsubishi also has signed MoUs regarding EVs with several governments around the globe including the Principality of Monaco and Iceland, among others, collaborating with these governments towards the popularization and promotion of EVs.
