Following the launch of the electric Mitsubishi Minicab i-MiEV, Suzuki decided to enter the fray with its battery-powered Every van. Suzuki has reportedly manufactured 13 of the electrified vans, which will be handed out to its dealerships in Japan on a trial basis. This, according to Integrity Exports, will allow Suzuki to test out its electrified people-moving machine ahead of the automaker's launch of a mass-produced battery-powered vehicle.

The electric Every EV comes fitted with a lithium-ion battery pack that can be recharged in five hours and provides up to 62 miles of range, more than enough for a typical delivery vehicle in Japan. Going electric means the Every gains 441 pounds over the gas-fueled model (pictured above), but the load capacity remains unchanged at 551 pounds. At this time, there's no indication that Suzuki will mass-produce the electric Every, but who really knows what the future holds?
