The Minicab MiEV, one of eight plug-in vehicles that Mitsubishi intends to launch by the end of 2015, is now available to order in Japan. The Minicab MiEV is an electric commercial van that's offered with a choice of either a 10.5 kWh or a 16.0 kWh Toshiba-supplied battery pack. Mitsubishi says that the 10.5 kWh version of the Minicab MiEV can be purchased for approximately 1,700,000 yen ($20,621 U.S. at the current exchange rate), while the 16.0 kWh version rings up at 2,050,000 yen ($24,867 U.
The Minicab MiEV, one of the eight new plug-in vehicles Mitsubishi will be dishing out over the next few years, is to be powered by Toshiba's SCiB battery. The two companies had announced they would be working together last summer, in part to aid quicker development of the fast-charging, long lasting battery tech.
