CA-Miev Mitsubishi at the Johannesburg Motor Show

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC), which traces its roots back to being an aircraft manufacturer known for its advanced technology, has continued to be a trend-setter in terms of new developments on the automotive and industrial fronts. Mitsubishi has also been very adept at transferring advanced technological developments from concept cars to production models and this trend is set to continue.

A recent example of the company’s technological ability which was exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year is the CA-MiEV, a concept four-seater electric car that is seen as an indicator to a potential production car in the not-too-distant future. The clay model of the futuristic, stylish CA-MiEV is displayed on the Mitsubishi stand at the Johannesburg International Motor Show.

Interest in all electric and hybrid vehicles has had a slow start globally. The comparatively small volumes of the Prius are still the largest selling hybrid in the world, but account for less than 0.1% of any market share. The all electric offerings from Nissan and others are yet to gain any traction. Notwithstanding these challenges, Mitsubishi believes that as much as 20% of its production in 2020 will be electric vehicles.
