Mitsubishi Stops Deliveries of Electric Cars to PSA Peugeot Citroen
Mitsubishi Motors confirmed it had "temporarily" stopped shipments of its i-MiEV electric car to PSA Peugeot Citroen.
Mitsubishi has been shipping the electric cars to PSA Peugeot Citroen, branded Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero in Europe, since 2010 with an agreement to supply a total of 100,000 of the vehicles.
“This is a temporary stoppage for adjusting stocks (of inventory),” a Mitsubishi spokesman in Tokyo told AFP, declining to elaborate.
It is estimated that Mitsubishi has made around 28,000 i-MiEVs in Japan since the cars launched in 2009.
In a bid to boost interest in the Peugeot and Citroen versions of their electric cars, PSA cut the prices of the models back in March this year.
in the UK, the C-Zero and iOn now cost just £21,216 (after a £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant is deducted), compared to £25,990 (after the Plug-in Car Grant) for their Nissan Leaf competition.
