Electric vehicles are sweeter than ever now that four Mitsubishi i vehicles, wrapped in Jelly Belly graphics, have invaded the Sweets & Snacks Expo 2011 in Chicago.

The Mitsubishi i vehicles, along with a pair of Mitsubishi Outlander crossovers, were whipping around the Windy City on Monday and Tuesday showing off for attendees of the Sweets & Snacks Expo.

About 500 companies and more than 15,000 national and international confectionery and snack industry professionals attend the trade show each year.

The Mitsubishi i will be available for test drives at Mitsubishi dealers beginning in November. The EV has a starting price of $27,990, but federal and state incentives just might sweeten the deal.
