Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has announced the conclusion of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Industry and Trade People’s Committee of Da Nang City (DOIT) and celebrated the handover of a series of new electric vehicles (EVs) in the City of Da Nang, Vietnam.
The event follows the conclusion in January of an MOU through which Mitsubishi Motors and the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade committed to explore how best to promote the use of EVs in the country. In a ceremony that took place in April, Mitsubishi Motors will provide two i-MiEV pure EVs, together with a further two Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid EVs and two quick battery charger units to DOIT.
These vehicles will enable Mitsubishi Motors and the DOIT to study how EVs can reduce CO2 emissions and utilise popular sightseeing locations, specifically around Da Nang City and the Hoi An World Heritage site.
Vietnam is seeking ways to reduce CO2 emissions and to produce cleaner air and greener cities. Da Nang
City launched an Environment City Plan in 2008, with the aim of transforming itself into an Environmental City by 2020.
