  1. As I am driving the same car with the current combustion engine for daily runs much less than 150 km distance I can’t wait to have the EV as my “mainly used second car”.
    Using overnight power connection for recharging electricity companies wil be happy to have some load besides hot water systems.
    For longer distances I see automatic battery exchange at fast food outlets while in the ordering queue… In this manner one could also just “hire” a battery and not own one.

  2. Mitsubishi must attempt small electric cars for middle class Indian at a price of $3500. Marlet will be big for at least 30000 cars a year. Why not co. is thinking on collaboration.
    I am unterested to join in collaboration.
