Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car has left the Russian market

wroom.ru. – The official sales of Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric cars in Russian market has been discontinued. As stated by the distributor of the brand: MMS Rus to Wroom.ru website, the resumption of the supply of the model to Russia is not planned in the near future, due to the increase in the price of the model, caused by the depreciation of the ruble against the Japanese yen. However, Mitsubishi i-MiEV may return to the Russian market, in the event of an improvement in economic circumstances.

Only 8 i-MiEV have been sold in Russia within the first eight months of the year, according to Autostat data. The official dealers of the brand have only sold 267 Mitsubishi i-MiEV in five years, on the other hand.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV had been the only official electric car model represented in the Russian market until recently. However, the sales of two other electric models have started in the country as of the beginning of September: Renault Twizy and Kangoo Z.E.
