Universal Cars Ltd, the Mitsubishi importer and distributor for Hong Kong, announced today it will begin sales of the i-MiEV electric vehicle to individuals.
UCL will begin sales of the i-MiEV to individuals at a price of HK$395,000 and it's approximately RM 164,244.62, with a target to sell 50 units by the end of this year. Up to now, mass-production i-MiEVs have only been delivered to the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China (HKSAR) and some companies.
This makes HK the first country outside of Japan where the i-MiEV will be sold to individuals. In Japan, MMC first sold the i-MiEV mainly to corporations and municipalities in 2009, with sales of about 1,400 units. In Apr, MMC expanded its sales to include sales to individuals.
