MMC and PSA launch powertrain feasibility study

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) and PSA Peugeot Citroën have started a feasibility study for the development and supply of powertrains for electric vehicles.

The study will include analysis on the packaging of batteries and business viability. The first application of this new agreement will focus on light commercial vehicles.

MMC and PSA Peugeot Citroën have already signed a Cooperative Agreement regarding the development and supply of electric vehicles for Europe.

Based on this agreement, MMC plans to start production of a jointly developed European model based on its i-MiEV new-generation electric vehicle for PSA Peugeot Citroën this October.

The sales of these European models, the Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero, will commence at the end of this year.
