The Mitsubishi MINICAB MiEV is a new electric van presented by the Japanese manufacturer in 2011. The vehicle is based on the conventional Minicab CD van, but unlike its donor which is sold only on the Japanese market, the MINICAB MiEV van will be also available on the global market.
Mitsubishi has announced that it is developing a plan to produce a version of the Minicab-MiEV for Suzuki in Japan, but this model will be sold only in its home market.
The MINICAB MiEV comes with a choice of two batteries that offer different cruising range. The batteries are mounted under the floor to maximize load volume, while the motor inverter and other EV components are placed under the cargo compartment. The vehicle has a payload of 350 kg which is basically the same capacity offered by the fuel powered Minicab CD Van.
The MINICAB MiEV was initially launched in Japan with an MPSR ranging from $ 30,800 to $38,200.
Mitsubishi’s range of heavy duty trucks received recently a host of upgrades which make it able to deal better with the competition. The truck received new engines, new transmissions and a host of useful features, most of them being based on Daimler’s products.
Thanks to the new upgrades, the Mitsubishi Fuso Heavy has made an important step forward, being closer to the requirements of today’s transport industry.
Mitsubishi’s Fuso Heavy range includes two models namely the FP and FV models. The trucks come with a choice of three diesel engines and with GCM (Gross Combination Mass) ratings between 40.000 – 58.000 kg.
Mitsubishi’s medium duty truck was built with versatility in mind and is available in a wide range of version with GVMs (Gross Vehicle Masses) ranging from 10400 kg-24000 kg.
The Mitsubishi Fuso fighter has undergone a full model change in 2009 when it received a more comfortable cabin and a host of technical upgrades to make it able to compete with success against its rivals.
The truck is offered with a choice of two engines which develop 177 or 199 hp with maximum torques of 686 Nm and 785 Nm respectively. The interesting part is that recently the Fuso Fighter’s transmission lineup was completed with an Allison automatic unit which is now offered together with the manual gearboxes.
The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter received a radical makeover in 2011. While the model was initially launched only with two wheel drive traction, shortly after it was followed by an all wheel drive variant. The vehicle is available in two versions including the single cab and crewcab models with 3 or 7 seats and a wheelbase length of 3415 mm and 3865 mm respectively. Depending on the model, the chassis load capacity ranges from 3500 kg to 3735 kg, offering a higher degree of versatility. The Mitsubishi Fuso Canter 6C18 has a permissible gross weight of 6.5 tones which gives it rough carrying abilities.
The Daimler owned Fuso Canter is the best selling truck in the company’s lineup and it has a starting price of $55,854.
