Mitsubishi to introduce electric car from Japan in the US?

Today’s Wall Street Journal has a video from the New York 2008 car show about a small electric car from Mitsubishi that might come to the United States.

Here’s the question I have about every electric automobile: How much does it cost, and where can I buy it? Sadly, the answer always seems to be “crazy expensive” and “we expect to introduce it next year!”

Tesla seems to be the closest to a production vehicle in the US, but those haven’t hit the streets either.
