On October 2, a delivery ceremony was held at NYK’s head office in the Marunouchi area of Tokyo for two recently purchased i-MiEVs (i-MiEV: Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle), environment-friendly electric vehicles produced by the Mitsubishi Motors Corporation. The two vehicles were painted an aurora blue to match the color used on NYK’s pure car carriers.
Next year, NYK has plans to purchase another EV for use at an NYK Group company and will continue to examine further possible opportunities to introduce more EVs within NYK and NYK Group companies.
And until the end of November, NYK will be allowing employees to ride along in the EV that will be used for mail delivery so that they can become more familiar with this innovative new vehicle.
NYK will continue its efforts to contribute to the betterment of our environment.
