Come drive the fully electric car Mitsubishi i-MiE...

Charge Your Future at Menara Matrade – 12 to 13 November 2011, 9am – 10pm


Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official importer and distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, will be offering Malaysians a chance to drive the fully electric vehicle Mitsubishi i-MiEV this weekend at Menara Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE), Kuala Lumpur.

This i-MiEV test-drive is held in conjunction of the Car of the Year (COTY) 2011 event organized by Cars, Bikes & Trucks (CBT).

Visitors to the event will get an opportunity to test-drive the first fully electric car registered in Malaysia. Participants will be guided by a marshal and are allowed to drive the Mitsubishi i-MiEV around the MATRADE building and bring another two of their family or friends along for the ride.

MMM has registered the first fully electric car in Malaysia, the Mitsubishi i-Miev recently. MMM is the first to bring in a mass-produced full-electric car to Malaysia to promote the awareness of zero-emission electric vehicles among the Malaysian public.

Producing 49 kW of power and 180 Nm of instant torque, the i-MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) is powered solely by electricity, and can be recharged from a regular home socket. With a top speed of 130 km/h, the four-seater vehicle can run up to 160 kilometres (100 miles) after charging eight hours at 230 volts. In addition, the i-MiEV can be rapid-charged from flat to 80% in just 30 minutes.

The i-Miev accelerates 31 per cent faster than a gasoline powered car in the 40 to 60 km/h range.

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is based on the gasoline-powered i minicar, but instead of an internal combustion engine, its sole power source is a lithium-ion battery pack powering a permanent magnet electric motor. The 330V battery is located under the floor deck, while the electric motor is housed under the luggage compartment.

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia halts delivery of Pajer...

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, will halt the delivery of Pajero Sport and Triton for the time being due to the on-going flood situation in Thailand which has disrupted parts supply to Mitsubishi Motors’ plant, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand (MMTh).

MMTh has been suspending production at its factory located in Laem Chabang Industrial Estates because the flood has made it difficult to procure the required parts for Pajero Sport and Triton.

Customers who made prior bookings for Pajero Sport and Triton (selected variants) in Malaysia may anticipate delays in receiving their vehicles.

“We apologize for the delay on vehicle deliveries especially the Triton and Pajero Sport. Our commitment to our customers remains our top priority and we are monitoring closely on the situation in Thailand” said Mr. Tetsuya Oda, Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.

In the meantime, Mitsubishi Motors will continue to keep their customers informed from time-to-time and ensures that the car delivery will be made as soon as the situation in Thailand recovers.

The good news is that selected Triton variants have adequate stock to fulfil the current market demand. Other CBU units which comes from Japan such as ASX, Lancer GT, Lancer Sportback, Grandis and Pajero Exceed were not affected. In addition to MMM’s free maintenance and warranty package, MMM is also offering attractive deals for selected models.

On a separate note, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has donated relief funds in an amount equivalent to 30 million yen (approximately RM1,000,0000) to support the victims and areas affected by the recent extensive flooding in northern and central Thailand.

Back home, MMM has taken the decision to donate RM 20.00 for every car registered from Nov to Dec 2011 in order to help those who have suffered as a result of the flood situation and to contribute to the rebuilding of affected areas.

That’s not all. From Dec 2011 to March 2012, Mitsubishi Motors will be initiating the Mitsubishi Customer Appreciation Program exclusively for Mitsubishi owners. Customers who make an appointment prior to servicing their Mitsubishi vehicle will receive a token of appreciation from Mitsubishi Motors. In addition, a food voucher will also be rewarded to customers after the servicing of their vehicle is done.
