Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has delivered a fleet of MMC’s EV and PHEV vehicles from the Japanese Government to the Costa Rican Government.
The delivery includes the transfer of 20 Outlander PHEVs, the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV together with an additional 29 units of the i-MiEV EV.
The initiative forms part of the Overseas Development Agreement between the Japanese and Costa Rican Governments, through which Japan has committed to provide a range of next-generation vehicles to the Central American nation.
In 2015, Costa Rica announced that it would seek to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25% from 2012 to 2030, and today is one of only 5 countries whose national climate commitments are rated sufficient by the international Climate Action Tracker (CAT).
The Costa Rican Government has announced that it is considering the introduction of 100,000 new electric vehicles and the Costa Rican Legislative Assembly recently debated the introduction of new legislation to massively expand the nation's EV infrastructure.
The delivered vehicles being delivered today will be utilized by 15 different government agencies and universities.
