In anticipation of Laos’s budding economy and future predictions of its progression into the automotive industry, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has donated two vehicles to the Laos government- but the neat thing about these cars is that they are both i-MIEV models, a new type of electric vehicle Mitsubishi hopes to see tested in Laos.
The electric vehicles, or EVs, are built to be environmentally-friendly, and Laos’s large rivers serve as a perfect resource for renewable energy for such vehicles. The advancement of EVs, of course, would help to reduce CO2 emissions and lessen the amount of pollution produced by modern day vehicles in a developing economy.
So Mitsubishi wants to see where this car goes as Laos’s economy grows in the coming years, hoping to see it catch on in the market there. Mitsubishi already had their mark on Laos as a place to expand their sales back in December when they signed a contract with KLM Import-Export Sole Co., LTD., who is now their distributor in Laos, to rebuild their market in the country. There are plans to deliver more EVs and other vehicles in Mitsubishi’s line up in the future to the Laos market.
Of course, there are also a ton of great Mitsubishis still here in the states. Stop by Randall Mitsubishi to check one out today!
