Mitsubishi and Jelly Belly Show The Sweeter Side of Electric Cars

Last week, the 2011 Sweets & Snacks Expo made its way through Chicago. As the premier trade show of the candy industry, no one was surprised that Jelly Belly was well represented.

However, no one expected what company representatives were driving.

In an attempt to show Chicagoans the ‘sweeter’ side of sustainable transportation, the jelly bean giant teamed up with Mitsubishi Motors North America to debut four fully-electric Mitsubishi i vehicles dressed in brightly-colored custom Jelly Belly graphics.

The all-new Mitsubishi i will be available for test drives at Mitsubishi dealers beginning this November offering a starting MSRP of $27,990 (before Federal or State incentive) that hopes to make EV ownership more attainable.

Visit i.mitsubishicars.com for more information about the most affordable mass-produced production electric vehicle in America including vehicle specifications, tax incentives and how consumers can reserve their own vehicle.

Mitsu - good to see you testing in the 'water bath'

How long can it survive total immersion without having to be written off? And in salt water?

No risk of electrocution?

Electric cars are the future. We need to mass produce them and bring the price of the batteries down. They are much cheaper to operate than gas cars.
