Mitsubishi Motors plans to roll out mini-EVs in Japan by 2019.

TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Motors plans to roll out small sport utility vehicle-based electric vehicles in Japan, the U.S., Europe and other markets in the early 2020s. Mini EVs will also become available in Japan in 2019.

With the U.K., France and China shifting to electrification by restricting gasoline-powered vehicles, the Renault-Nissan alliance, including Mitsubishi, plans to further shift to EVs. Mitsubishi is to share its electrification technology, with Renault and Nissan supporting the group's EV strategy.
