“Automotive manufacturers like Mitsubishi are blazing new trails in clean transportation and delivering EVs that are more accessible to a wider population of drivers,” said Tim Conver, President and Chief Executive Officer, AeroVironment, Inc. “AeroVironment and Mitsubishi Motors share a vision where EV drivers enjoy a positive transportation experience that includes a full ‘tank’ at the start of every day. We look forward to working with Mitsubishi Motors to achieve that vision.”
AeroVironment delivers a full portfolio of EV charging systems that fit a wide range of consumer lifestyles and driving patterns – including solutions for the home, work, highway, and retail establishments. The Level 2 home charging station connects to a 240-volt line and is capable of recharging a fully depleted Mitsubishi i battery in approximately 7 hours. Additional AeroVironment charging solutions include a standard plug-in AC cord set (Level 1), a Level 2 connected or “smart” system for home and business use and DC fast chargers that can charge a completely empty main lithium-ion battery pack of a 2012 Mitsubishi i to 80 percent full in less than 30 minutes.
The 2012 Mitsubishi i is the most affordably-priced all-electric vehicle available to the mass market in America and features distinctive exterior styling, competent handling and a surprisingly roomy interior that comfortably seats four adults.
