Nissan and Mitsubishi have confirmed the fact that they agreed to expand the scope of their OEM supply agreements in the Japanese market, by interchanging the badges on the two vehicles- the Nissan Fuga and the Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV, according to reports given earlier this week.
The Fuga sedan will be provided by Nissan to Mitsubishi Motors starting from summer 2012 and in return Mitsubishi will provide the Minicab MiEV commercial mini EV to Nissan. The electric vehicle- MiEV with a 62- or 93-mile range comes with a base price of about 2 million yen after the government subsidies in Japan.
“The two companies have started deliberations on the provision of Mitsubishi Motors’ MINICAB-MiEV commercial mini EV to Nissan in fiscal year 2012,” the automakers said in a statement. “The two new OEM project agreements are part of the core agreement signed in December 2010 to expand cooperation between the two companies.”
We shall be waiting for some more information regarding the cars, especially the luxury model Fuga, and the way the agreement between the two automakers will go on.
