Mitsubishi donates electric cars to Ulaanbaatar administration

On Wednesday, Japan’s Mitsubishi Motors Corporation donated two electric cars to Ulaanbaatar administrations with hopes to further cooperate in importing electric cars to Mongolia.
Senior trainer of Mitsubishi Motors Tsutomu Hagiwara introduced the electric cars during a ceremony and highlighted, “This electric car is proven to be both ecologically and financially beneficial. After the deadly tsunami in 2011, Japan has largely used electric cars for rescue operations in the affected areas.”
The car runs on a fully electric motor and is capable of traveling 150 kilometers on a full charge.
The electric cars do not emit toxic gasses, increase air pollution, affect the environment, or make loud noises, and their batteries can be charged with two options: fast and normal.
The Office of the Ulaanbaatar City Governor and the Ulaanbaatar City Authority for Environment and Green Development will use the electric cars on a trial basis.
If proven beneficial to the city, Ulaanbaatar administrations are planning to sign a contract for electric car import with Mitsubishi Motors.
