Tests a jump start

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

Field tests have be­gun for an elec­tric van pro­to­type de­vel­oped by Mit­subishi Mo­tors. The tests are be­ing con­ducted with the Ja­panese com­mer­cial freight com­pany Yam­ato Trans­port. The pro­to­type — based on the Mit­subishi Mini­cab com­pact van — runs the same elec­tric mo­tor and lithium ion bat­tery pack as the iMiEV city car. Mit­subishi will col­lect data on the van, which will op­er­ate in Tokyo, to see how the elec­tric pow­er­plant han­dles the more in­ten­sive work­load of a com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle.
