MMC is considering developing the new electric Kei-car jointly with its alliance partner, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Nissan). The investment will be made in:
- The establishment of assembly and inspection equipment for the drive battery, which will be newly adopted,
- The expansion of stamping, welding and painting assembly facilities following a shift to in-house production of drive battery cases, and
- The line expansion for manufacturing EV platforms.
“The shift towards electric mobility is gaining momentum as South Africa joins the global electric vehicle revolution to support EV initiatives and technology,” says Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors SA (MMSA).
MMC continues its efforts in promoting electric vehicles collaborating with municipalities in Okayama Prefecture and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
