*1: Mitsubishi innovative Vehicle

Derived from the Van minicar-class commercial vehicle, the has been developed maximizing the and knowhow gained from the of the i-MiEV in delivering the superior performance inherent to an EV, together the high levels of operating payload capacity, drivability and demanded of a commercial vehicle.

The will come with a of two sizes of drive battery to the customer to choose the cruising best suited to his or her needs. The CD kWh battery version provides a range of 100 km (at JC08 mode) on a charge, while the CD 16.0 kWh takes this up to 150 km.

Since then MMC has sold 5,000 units in Japan and has a total of about 17,000 (as of October 31, 2011), including supplied to PSA Peugeot Citroën. As a manufacturer of EVs, MMC is confident as it expands its lineup of EV models it serve as pioneers on the path quickly making possible a society.

1. MINICAB-MiEV Product

The new MINICAB-MiEV is derived from the CD in the MINICAB series of minicar-class vehicles. Powered by the same battery and motor drivetrain well proven in the i-MiEV, the new offers payload capacity on a par the MINICAB CD, as well as a cruising that is ample for the requirements of a commercial vehicle.

The new MINICAB-MiEV provides outstanding operating at an accessible price. MINICAB-MiEV a level of all-round performance is well above that of minicar-class commercial vehicles as its motor drivetrain delivers environmental performance and outstanding and its whisper-quiet driving make for a and comfortable operating environment.

1) performance

The MINICAB-MiEV is a zero-emissions vehicle drive-time emissions) and so is the ideal of vehicle for transporting foodstuffs, flowers and other sensitive or for delivery/collection work in areas inaccessible to a gasoline-powered vehicle facilities, in an environmentally protected etc.).

Being derived the low cost/high performance MINICAB Van and most of the same major EV as the i-MiEV allows Mitsubishi to sell the MINICAB-MiEV at an accessible In addition, with the application of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Subsidies for measures designed to introduction of clean energy the CD 10.5 kWh version comes an attractive price tag starting at

Commercial vehicles are usually longer and cover longer mileages than family so the MINICAB-MiEV also offers advantages over a comparable in terms of total operating including the price of the vehicle, the main running cost is that of the comparatively inexpensive used to charge its battery

3) Payload capacity

The MINICAB-MiEV the same outstanding packaging as the where the high-capacity drive is located under the floor and the inverter and other EV components are under the cargo compartment.

The is cargo compartment space and capacity (350 kg with two which are on a par with the MINICAB CD, delivering the high levels of required in a commercial vehicle.

4) Driving performance

The MINICAB-MiEV the electric motor’s inherent of generating maximum torque as as the vehicle starts to move off to stress-free gutsy performance when fully-loaded.

In addition, of the EV’s inherently quiet the MINICAB-MiEV makes the ideal vehicle for delivery work in the morning or late at night in districts. The lack of vibration makes it well suited to delicate goods.

The stress-free and quiet performance are complemented by excellent ride comfort and all helps to reduce fatigue in drivers who are behind the wheel for hours a day.

5) Reliability

The uses the same drive motor and other major that have been in the i-MiEV and also shares the MiEV OS integrated vehicle system.

Constantly monitoring the remaining in the battery while at the time regulating the regenerative system, the MiEV OS operates to smooth and powerful off-the-line The system contributes to pleasant, and reassuring vehicle operation optimizing and saving energy
