I did send an email to the author of the article several days ago as he wrote the article in 2015 and the subject does deserve an update.

I am sure that we have a range of opinions as to how Russia operates. I grew up in the 50s and 60s living with the politics and impressions of those times. My father's impressions (being a WWII pilot and later a SAC pilot) were typical of those at the time. They were the bad guys.

But times change, we hope for the better.

And if we are going to beat the global warming problem, Russia has to become part of the solution.

And I still wonder about all of the 70 'Mievs that Putin ordered for his conference a few years back (see the links above).

And what is Mitsubishi's plan with respect to the 'Miev after 2017 in Russia?

I completely missed that she (Anastasia) published the article on September 6, 2015! :oops: ... and my premise was all wrong, as they had 14 months to implement the change, and not two months. I'll shut up now... :oops:

Another large purchase from Mitsubishi: http://insideevs.com/mitsubishi-signs-d ... der-phevs/

"This marks the second time MMC has supplied vehicles under the Green Investment Scheme, the first being to deliver of 507 units of the i-MiEV all-new electric vehicle to the Government of Estonia starting in October 2011."

The revelation that they sold 507 'Mievs to Estonia was new to me. That's the largest sale I've heard of.
