Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation have agreed to expand their original equipment manufacturing (OEM) supply agreement involving mini-cars. Nissan and Mitsubishi currently have OEM agreements in Japan, where Mitsubishi supplies Nissan with mini-cars and small light commercial vehicles (LCV) while Nissan supplies light commercial vehicles to Mitsubishi.
The expanded agreement will add two new scopes of co-operation:
Expanded OEM supply in Japan. Mitsubishi will supply its Pajero Mini SUV to Nissan starting from autumn 2008 on an OEM basis.
Explore opportunities for expanded light commercial vehicle supply. Both companies will explore collaboration on the development, production and OEM supply of small light commercial vehicles for Japan and overseas markets.
