Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Menguji Keberkesanan Van Kecil EV

Mitsubishi Motors membuat penelitian sama ada Minicab MiEV akan dapat dilaksanakan di Thailand.

Era mobiliti elektrik sudah tiba, bahkan di Asia Tenggara, di mana infrastruktur masih belum siap dibina. Tidak ada syarikat yang mahu menjadi yang terakhir dalam perlumbaan ini, tetapi tidak banyak yang mempunyai sumber dan daya untuk melakukannya sepenuhnya.

Untuk menguji satu segmen khusus kenderaan elektrik di Thailand, Mitsubishi Motors telah bekerjasama dengan rakan tempatan mereka melakukan kajian untuk melihat sama ada Kenderaan Elektrik kompak mempunyai masa depan di sektor komersial. Mereka melakukan kajian ini dengan rakan tempatan “Eternity Grand Logistics”.

Anehnya, program perintis ini nampaknya sangat kecil. Hanya SATU unit Japanese Domestic Market Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV akan diberikan untuk digunakan kepada syarikat logistik untuk dijalankan.

Minicab MiEV sudah digunakan di Jepun selama satu dekad sekarang dan is ada kaitan dengan MiEV yang pernah tersedia di Malaysia.

Ini siaran media Mitsubishi dengan lebih maklumat.

MEDIA RELEASE

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced that Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Co., Ltd. (MMTh), MMC’s subsidiary in Thailand, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on June 9 with Eternity Grand Logistics Public Co., Ltd. (Eternity), a logistics company of the Hitachi Transport System Group, to conduct a pilot study on commercial viability of compact electric vehicles (EV) in Thailand. 

Under the terms of the MoU, MMTh will provide one unit of the Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV, a compact commercial EV that is now 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 will enable us to explore opportunities to apply EVs for commercial applications,” said Eiichi Koito, president and CEO of MMTh.

“It 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.”  

Ryuichi Honda, CEO of Asia Region of Hitachi Transport System (HQ) and chairman of Eternity, said, “As one of the leading players in the logistics industry, we have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint while also cutting operational expenses. We are proud to be partnering with one of the leading automotive companies, Mitsubishi Motors, who has the advanced technology and capability to produce high-tech EVs. This study will allow us to understand and obtain more information on the potential introduction of EVs into our operations. It is in-line with our aim to become a responsible corporate citizen at the forefront of industrial and environmental sustainability.”  

MMC 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.
