Automobile manufacturers Mitsubishi Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroën have announced that they have signed an agreement to start the technical development of an electric version of Peugeot Partner and Citroën Berlingo LCVs built at the PSA Vigo plant in Spain.

Under this co-operative agreement, both partners will specify all technical and industrial aspects to be able to commence production of these electric versions by the end of 2012.

This signature is a continuation of the previous co-operative agreement on the jointly developed European Peugeot Ion and Citroën C-Zero models based on the i-MiEV new-generation electric vehicle.
