Our greasemonkey brethren at Jalopnik clue us into Mitsubishi's latest car coolness, where the company will reportedly soon ship a non-exploding lithium-ion battery powered car to the US market. Of course, the vehicle will be seen first in Japan, as are nearly all decent gadgets. Speculation is running toward the all-electric plug-in subcompact looking like the hybrid concept-CT that was shown in Detroit last year and pictured above.
It's about time someone started bringing these electric cars to market in mass quantities. Big electric car fans, we're still holding out for a Tesla, which sings the body electric in style, not to mention its zero-to-60 time of four seconds.
