Mitsubishi working on light-duty electric truck for farmers, contractors
The Nikkei (via Reuters) says that plan for the upcoming light-duty truck is to let it easily charge from a household outlet and that it "will be targeted at farmers, contractors and others who use light trucks for their work." The cost? less than 1.5 million yen ($19,223 U.S. at today's exchange rates) after Japanese government subsidies. Sounds like a practical new entry into the plug-in universe.
Beyond this practicality, Mitsubishi's plans expand in many directions. We've heard that Mitsubishi will offer up a plug-in version of the Outlander Sport and an electric model based on the Evolution XI concept in 2013, as well as a plug-in Evo sedan.
