According to the very enthusiastic press release, Mitsubishi will be appearing at the Tokyo Motor Show in a few weeks with 16 new products in tow, one of which will be the i-MiEV Cargo Concept. If you’ve read, seen, our otherwise know anything about the Ford Transit Connect, then you can appropriately gauge how excited you should be over the i-MiEV Cargo Concept – which is to say, not very. Designed for the rough and raucous small business owner crowd, the i-MiEV Cargo is slightly bigger than a minivan yet smaller then the beat up panel van your plumber uses.
As the name would suggest, the i-MiEV Cargo is a plug-in electric vehicle and sources power from a single permanent magnet synchronous motor. Output is limited to 47 kW and 180 Nm of torque and average range is a modest 160 km (about 100 miles) per charge. Despite the seemingly production-ready specs, Mitsubishi has not indicated when the i-MiEV Cargo will hit the market so for now, you’ll just have to sate your lust for 60-feet of storage space with the image gallery after the jump.
