Georgian delegation visited Mitsubishi headquarters on June 29 in the frame of the visit in Tokyo, Japan. Delegation members from Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) and Georgian National Investment Agency (GNIA) were showed around the showroom and got acquainted with the new models of electric cars. After the meeting with Osamu Masuko, General Director of the Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors, it was decided that the company will give its new model of electric car, released last year, as a free gift to Georgian government.

Mitsubishi Motors is among the top world leaders in terms of green technologies. The company plans to release a new model of the Jeep electric car, which appears to be even more interesting for Georgian delegation. In addition, Georgian government suggested re-export opportunities to the Japanese automaker.

“Georgian government has launched a renewable energy project and we want to offer our electric cars to this country. We’ve started releasing small size electric cars and next year we’ll launch medium size hybrid vehicle sales,” declared the General Director of Mitsubishi Motors.

“This electric car will go a test drive in Georgia in summer and if it’s a success, another test drive of the Jeep electric car will be organized in winter,” stated Kakha Baindurashvili, the President of GCCI.

“Innovative electric car by Mitsubishi is comfortable to drive, no engine noise is heard.  What’s most important for Georgian consumers, it’s an environment-friendly vehicle,” said Keti Bochorishvili, Director of GNIA.

“Japanese automaker will give an electric car to Georgia as a free gift. I hope such kind of latest technologies will be a success in our country,” noted Revaz Beshidze Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Georgia in Japan.

Mitsubishi Motors representatives are expected to visit Georgia in September and discuss concrete details of cooperation during a joint conference.

On June 28-29 Georgian Prime Minister Nika Gilauri was on a two-day visit in Japan. During his stay in Japan, Georgian PM met with Yoshihiko Noda, Prime Minister of Japan and exchanged views on the bilateral relationship, international issues and others. The aim of the visit was to further strengthen friendly and cooperative relations between Japan and Georgia.
