Nissan and Mitsubishi have announced plans to jointly develop a new generation of micocars through their joint venture NMKV.

Set to become "more competitive products," the next-generation of micocars will benefit from Nissan's deeper involvement in development and testing.  The models will also feature new technologies and the companies confirmed plans for a new EV variant.

Nissan and Mitsubishi declined to say when the models will be introduced but they confirmed the production is planned to continue at Mitsubishi's Mizushima Plant.  It will eventually build the successors to the Nissan Dayz and Dayz Roox as well as the Mitsubishi eK Wagon and eK Space.

In a statement, Nissan CCO Hiroto Saikawa said "This new opportunity will enable us to deliver even more competitive vehicles to consumers by enhancing our product and lineup, by strengthening our partnership and combining the expertise of both companies."
