Peugeot-Citroen Partnering With Mitsubishi For Electric Cars

Peugeot-Citroen is teaming up with Mitsubishi to work on production electric cars in response to the current world freak-out over gas prices. Mitsubishi already has the i MiEV pictured above, but that vehicle isn't even available here. So, it remains to be seen what exactly the Franco-Japanese alliance is attempting to engineer.

Mitsubishi will be sharing all sorts of technology with the Frenchies, like information on how to better prevent overheating batteries and how to better convert electric juice to drive power, as well as supplying lithium-ion batteries. Peugeot-Citroen will in turn supply Mitsubishi with, umm... foie gras and a rusty 2CV, perhaps?
