Sydney-based early adopters in Australia's growing electric vehicle segment have a new hero, with the launch this week of a new electric vehicle roadside assistance service and a mobile charging vehicle.

Operated by NRMA Motoring & Services as part of a six-month trial, the new all-green and all-electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV will provide basic roadside assistance to motorists across Sydney.

"The NRMA's i-MiEV will help us understand our Members' EV needs as part of our regular roadside assistance network in the city and will service both electric and regular vehicles," NRMA Motoring & Services President Wendy Machin said.

"Our Patrol workers have been trained on servicing electric vehicles to ensure the NRMA is keeping pace with emerging alternative fuels technology."

Joining the i-MiEV is a new mobile charging station which can provide stranded EV owners with enough buzz to drive their car to the nearest dedicated recharging station.

To keep its i-MiEV and mobile charging station juiced up, the NRMA has installed a Club Assist charging point at its Wynyard office and North Straightfield headquarters.

The news comes as Mitsubishi prepares to make its i-MiEV electric vehicle available to the wider public. Rival carmaker Nissan is also expected to launch its LEAF electric vehicle in Australia sometime in 2012.
