Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. will launch four new mini-vehicles in Japan developed through their joint venture NMKV Co. Ltd.
The companies integrated Nissan's technologies and Mitsubishi's expertise in producing minicars into the development of the light wagon-type cars.
The Nissan Dayz, Nissan Dayz Highway Star, Mitsubishi eK wagon and Mitsubishi eK X will go on sale in late March. All four models will be offered with semi-autonomous driving technology, built for single-lane use on highways, according to the release.
NMKV was formed by the two automakers in 2011.
The latest announcement comes after the February launch of the all-new Nissan Livina, which shares a platform with the Mitsubishi Xpander, in Indonesia.
The Japanese carmakers, which are part of an automotive alliance with Renault SA, recently unveiled management shake-ups following the release from detention of former executive Carlos Ghosn, who served as chairman at all three companies.
