Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc. has added AeroVironment to its slate of authorized suppliers of electric vehicle (EV) home charging systems, on-site installation services and support for the 2012 Mitsubishi i.
AeroVironment offers a platform of EV charging systems, including Level 2 home stations that connect to a 240 V line and can recharge a fully depleted Mitsubishi i battery in approximately seven hours. AeroVironment also has standard plug-in AC cord sets (Level 1), a Level 2 connected system for homes and businesses, and DC fast chargers.
The Mitsubishi i all-electric vehicle is currently available in the U.S., and the company notes that it will waive the $99.99 site consultation fee for the first 2,000 customers who pre-order the EV, through April 19. The consultation includes an analysis of current electrical wiring capacity, recommended station placement and a review of the costs related to installing an EV charging system.
