Mitsubishi Motors has produced 5,000 i-MiEVs to date

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has reached 5,000 units of its i-MiEV new generation electric vehicle (EV) produced at its Mizushima Plant as of 23 November. This figure does not include EV production for PSA Peugeot Citroën.

The i-MiEV began mass production in June 2009. The month after that, MMC introduced the i-MiEV to the Japanese market, and has sold about 3,000 units to individuals and businesses nationwide (as of end October 2010). MMC also started left-hand drive European-spec i-MiEV production from October 2010, and is steadily proceeding with global rollout of EVs.

In fiscal year 2011, in order to further expand its production scale via starting North American-spec i-MiEV production, MMC plans to transfer production of the i-MiEV from the current commercial vehicle assembly line to the minicar assembly line for cars such as eK Wagon and i.



With over 5000 units produced, would the i-miev qualify as the first mass produced EV? The Leaf will probably catch up in 2011.
