Mitsubishi announced that it would be releasing it’s iMiEV Electric car and is hoping to get some chargers throughout Japan. Specifically Mitsubishi is trying to get EV chargers in parking lots and any public spaces where these cars may frequent. Electric cars have a limited range, so parking lots would be a good place for people on longer trips to stop by and charge up before heading home.
Furthermore it would show the cars success if more chargers were placed throughout the country. If everywhere you looked there was a charge station for an EV vehicle, wouldn’t you want one? As it stands now, the only place people will be charging the Mitsubishi iMiEV will be in their own garages and driveways while they sleep.
