Mitsubishi to Begin i MiEV Fleet Testing in Iceland

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding fleet testing of its zero-emissions i MiEV electric vehicle with Iceland’s Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism. Iceland has aggressive plans to reduce its dependency on fossil fuels; proposed testing of the electric car would begin during 2009.

Since 1980, Iceland has been making inroads toward a shift to sustainable energy, and at present the nearly 100% of the country’s electric power needs are met by hydroelectric and geothermal sources.

In Japan, the i MiEV electric vehicle is currently in fleet testing with seven electric power companies, and is currently in development for a 2009 launch.

It is possible to build a car that recycles its CO2. Methanol can be made at a geothermal power plant by combining hydrogen with recycled CO2. Perhaps in the future large ocean tankers will transport liquid CO2 to countries to make fuel with nuclear power. ..HG..

Well, if any small European country can pull off EV's and pull this off with domestic energy it would probably be Iceland.

Good luck to em!
