  1. "VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - It can go 120 kilometres on a single charge and has
    a maximum speed of 130 kilometres an hour. The world's first highway-ready electric
    car is now in North America. Mayor Gregor Robertson accepted the keys to a new
    i-MiEV Friday on behalf of the City of Vancouver. "We are very excited in Vancouver
    here to have the i-MiEV's and honoured to be chosen by Mitsubishi as the Canadian
    partners for launching the i-MiEV in Canada." Vancouver is the first city to pass a by-law
    requiring charging stations for electric vehicles in new developments. Mitsubishi has
    also given two cars to BC Hydro."

    the M-iEV launched this year at around $33-34,000 in Japan
