Mitsubishi mentioned earlier this year that it plans on having half of all of its vehicle sales be electric vehicles by the year 2020 – so it would make sense that Nissan plans on rolling out more electric vehicles.
Mitsubishi is planning to roll out a small electric pickup truck, which would be Mitsubishi’s third electric vehicle in addition to the Mitsubishi MiniCab-MiEV, and the Mitsubishi iMiEV also known as the Mitsubishi I in the USA.
The small electric pickup will be able to charge from a standard electrical outlet, and will be targeted at farmers, contractors, and others who use a small pickup truck for their jobs. The cost will be somewhere around the $20000 mark (using current exchange rates from 1.5 million Yen).
Mitsubishi has also stated they are making plans for a plug-in version of the Mitsubishi Outlander as well as an electric vehicle based on the Mitsubishi Evolution concept.
