TOEIC Lesson 47 (Mitsubishi iMiev Electric Car) VIDEO Script, Questions and Answers:
Yuko: Al, I just love the new Electric car from Mitsubishi. It looks so cute and I think it’s cool that you can customize it by choosing different wrappings.
Al: Really? I didn’t know about that. I just heard that it was shown at the LA autoshow last month and was quite a hit.
Yuko: Yeah. I was looking at Mitsubishi’s website and saw that they have a page where you can play with the design of the car by choosing different wrappings for the car’s doors, hood and liftgate.
Al: That’s cool Yuko. Did you find a design you liked? I wonder if we can go test drive the car?
Yuko: I played with the design for a few minutes using the website and I think I like the colorful heart pattern with the purple body color best. But they have flowers and rainbows and technological patterns too. And yes, I saw on the website that you can rent the car for 500 Yen an hour for up to 4 hours. So maybe we should go check it out!
Al: Yeah sure. By the way how much will the car cost? Can we buy one now?
Yuko: Oh, I couldn’t find the price on the website but I saw somewhere that it will go for about 3.98 million Yen but the company is also planning to lease them. In any case I think this car is just right for many Japanese drivers given the short distances we drive.
Al: I think you’re right, Yuko. Let me know if you dig up any information about the leasing price. I really like the idea of just plugging in the car to charge it. It is getting harder and harder to find a gas station in Japan these days! The two near my house were closed and are now just empty plots of land. I guess they are a harbinger of the future of gasoline cars.
Yuko: It sure is! Ok, I’ll see what I can find.
