A convoy of eight i-MiEVs attended the opening of the new charge point in the Adelaide Hills yesterday, with South Australian Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Hon. Paul Caica MP, officially launching the charger by plugging in a Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
MMAL vice-president corporate strategy, Paul Stevenson, welcomed the addition of another public charging station for i-MiEV users to the South Australian network.
“As the i-MiEV gains popularity, the expansion of the charging network in Australia is an important step towards an electric future. i-MiEV owners can now re-charge at a number of locations in Adelaide, including the free fast charger located at Mitsubishi Motors’ head office in Clovelly Park,” Mr Stevenson said.
The EV charging station at The Organic Market and Café, Stirling, was installed by ChargePoint and features Level 1 (15 amps) and Level 2 (32 amps) charging points.
The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is available from selected Mitsubishi dealers in all capital cities. To find an i-MiEV dealer, or for more information, visit the Mitsubishi website at www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au or call 1300 13 12 11.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited recommends that the i-MiEV electric vehicle always be charged using renewable or “green” energy.
