Mitsubishi Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroen have signed an agreement to jointly develop an electric version of Peugeot Partner and Citroen Berlingo light commercial vehicles built at the PSA Vigo plant in Spain.

This new cooperative agreement will require both partners to specify all technical and industrial aspects to facilitate the commencement of production of these electric versions by the end of 2012.

This partnership builds on the previous cooperative agreement between the two companies that led to the development of the European Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-ZERO models based on Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV electric vehicle.
