Electric cars sold in winter climate

The keys to Canada's first fully electric Mitsubishi car were handed over to a Winnipeg man on Thursday, at the start of winter.

"We have the cleanest [hydroelectric] power in Canada, probably in the world," said Ross Redman, who picked up his new car at the Waverley Mitsubishi dealership.

"That's what I want to use for fuel in my car."

Redman, an electronics technician, said he originally purchased the i-MiEV pronounced "eye-meeve" for its high-torque performance, but now he is also motivated to save the environment.

"We have global warming problems," he said. "Polar bears for example, they can't get out on the sea ice because there is no sea ice."

"Somehow we have to slow down our production of carbon dioxide. This is my contribution," he added, pointing to his new vehicle.

The four-passenger, sub-compact hatchback has no tailpipe and emits no greenhouse gases.
