Mitsubishi Thailand signs MoU with Eternity to test EV commercial vehicles

Mitsubishi-Minicab-MiEV

Mitsubishi Motors Thailand (MMTh) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Eternity Grand Logistics Public (Eternity), to conduct a pilot study on the commercial viability of compact electric vehicles (EV) in Thailand.

Eternity is a logistics company of the Hitachi Transport System Group. 

Under the terms of the MoU, MMTh will provide one unit of the Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV, a compact commercial EV sold in Japan, for the study, and Eternity will use the vehicle for one year in its logistics operations.

The study aims to understand and explore EV commercial applications, verifying actual usage data including mileage, charging history, and delivery route.

"This study...is a part of our New Environmental Plan Package, and is contributing to the Thai government's electrification initiative. Through this study, we will explore ways to form an environment for EVs." president and CEO of MMTh Eiichi Koito said. 

Mitsubishi also said it plans to improve the Minicab-MiEV, which has established a track record and credibility for 10 years since its launch in Japan, through more experiments abroad, "thereby contributing to building an eco-conscious society together with companies in various industries."
