PG&E unveils Mitsubishi electric car
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- PG&E unveiled Friday a new zero-emissions electric car delivered to the utility by Mitsubishi Motors.
The iMiEV carries four people and can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge.
It runs on an lithium ion battery which powers a state of the art electric drive train.
PG&E plans to use it for research, testing and demonstration purposes. Officials want to show the benefits of dedicated electric vehicles in California.
PG&E has offered an electric vehicle rate to its customers since the mid-90s to encourage off-peak charging.
