Mitsubishi and Nissan strengthen alliance

Mitsubishi and Nissan will introduce four new mini-vehicles in Japan through their joint venture.

Production of the all-new Mitsubishi eK wagon, Mitsubishi eK X, Nissan Dayz, and Nissan Dayz Highway Star, has begun at Mitsubishi’s Mizushima Plant in Kurashiki, Japan.

For the first time, the models will be offered with semi-autonomous driving technology, designed for single-lane use on highways.

NMKV, a joint venture of the two companies, integrated Nissan’s advanced technologies and Mitsubishi’s extensive experience in mini-vehicle production into the light, tall wagon-type cars.

The models will go on sale in Japan later this month.
