Nissan said that it is working with Mitsubishi Motors on co-developing what it described as an “all-electric minivehicle”, to be launched in Japan in early FY2022. The new vehicle is being developed under NMKV Co., Ltd., which is a 50/50 joint venture between the two companies.
The EV will measure 3,395 mm long, 1,475 mm wide, and 1,655 mm high, which puts it in the kei car category in the country. It’ll have a battery capacity of 20 kWh, which according to the company, should suffice for daily chores in Japan. In addition, the vehicle can also be a mobile power source for the home—during blackouts. The EV will also come with advanced driver assistance technologies.
Nissan expects the prices to start at approximately 2 million yen.
