Nissan Motor Company and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will introduce four new minivehicles in Japan through their joint venture, as the companies continue to expand their collaboration.
Production of the all-new Nissan Dayz, Nissan Dayz Highway Star, Mitsubishi eK wagon and Mitsubishi eK X began at Mitsubishi’s Mizushima Plant in Kurashiki, Japan. For the first time, the models will be offered with semiautonomous 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 minivehicle production into the light, tall wagon-type cars. The models will go on sale later this month.
