Monday, April 11th, 2011 - Mitsubishi
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation today began taking orders at MMC’s dealerships throughout Japan for the Minicab-MiEV commercial mini EV that is planned to go on sale toward the end of the year.

Derived from the Minicab Van commercial mini vehicle, Minicab-MiEV is being developed to make maximum use of the technologies and knowhow gained from the development of i-MiEV in delivering the practical utility and driving performance demanded of a commercial vehicle. Reliability, durability and cost performance are also priority areas. The vehicle started a fleet testing program with Yamato Transport Co., Ltd. in October 2010 designed to verify its practical utility.

Minicab-MiEV is planned to be offered with a choice of two battery sizes*1 to meet different customer needs.

With government incentives, trial calculations indicate that Minicab-MiEV will come with a customer’s net price from around 1,700,000 yen and from around 2,050,000 yen for the 10.5 kWh and the 16.0 kWh battery versions respectively. The calculations are premised on Japanese government’s eco-car incentive program continuing in the 2011 fiscal year and unchanged in detail from fiscal 2010. As with the i-MiEV, Minicab-MiEV will be sold on both a maintenance lease*2 and a cash basis.

*1: 10.5 kWh (giving a range of around 100 kilometres/charge under JC08 mode conditions) and 16.0 kWh (range of around 150 kilometres).

*2: A lease in which the monthly payments include some of the taxes, insurance and maintenance costs.
