Costa Rica will be the first country in Americas to have the Mitsubishi Motors electric car called iMiEV, according to the local Mitsubishi distributor, Veinsa.

Veinsa's Ariel Aizenman said Costa Rica was chosen to make this release in the Americas, even first that in the United States because of its environmental record, his concern for the environment and its goal of being the first country carbon neutral by 2021.

The iMiEV is 100% electric powered by lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 160 kilometers at a speed of 130 kph and has a capacity for five passengers.
