With this type of publicity, does that mean our iMiEV will still be around for a while?

Since part of the job is to transport dignitaries within the Konstantinovsky Palace (I assume not actually indoors), there may be real advantages to using vehicles without fume-spewing tailpipes, especially if running in or near somewhat delicate structures of historical value.

That's great news!
I was in Bulgaria a few weeks back and saw a real push from renault for the twizy and kangoo ev's. There was a display of them in a mall. It's really encouraging to see EV's spreading their presence.
We're driving the future.
