TOKYO, Jan 12, 2010 - (ACN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced that ahead its forthcoming European launch during FY2010, Mitsubishi Motors' i-MiEV electric car has been voted "Ecobest 2009" by the AUTOBEST Jury: a further acknowledgment of its "real life" pioneering technology.

Reflecting on the vote, AUTOBEST Jury concluded: "i-MIEV is the first production electric vehicle on sale in Japan and soon to be sold in Europe. ECOBEST award founded by AUTOBEST Jury 10 years ago was one the very first worldwide to prize the efforts in the green field."

AUTOBEST's President Ilja Seliktar added his own comments, saying: "For us is a great pride to award i-MiEV. There are many statements in this exciting sector coming from almost any manufacturer. But - so far - Mitsubishi is the only one with a real EV for any customer."

An homage to Mitsubishi Motors' long standing efforts in the area of electric drivetrain and technology, this ECOBEST award also vindicates the long-term strategy MMC and its local partners initiated successfully in the Balkans, Central Europe, Russia, Turkey and the Ukraine from the early 90's.
