Just watch a few videos on the Minicab,   might get one for a second car, and put my spare Outlander battery in the back for a total of 24Kw/h,       

also, it appears they can be used to provide DC out power as well.

https://youtu.be/qHdBIcrcP-s (its in japanese) but it appears that the minicab is providing power to a Mitsubishi power box, and that is running a heater and coffee machine..

The PHEV has an option for a 1000W inverter. It sits between the charger . and the rear motor controller in the back...

Japan only though... :-)

Wow that seems over priced.
Esp since they don't appear to have plates (not registered).
And there is no way that they would still be getting 130km range.

I'd rather wait for the Jap importer to sell one for $13-14k.

I guess some dealer thought he'd get a couple jam on an extra $5k and use the promo from when they were new.
Wonder what will happen when the buyer doesn't make 100k's.
Refund - false advertising.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

The CarSales ones are advertised as the 16kWh pack. How do you tell the difference (12 vs 16kwh) on the Japan importer site?

1 is now marked as Sold.

For a local delivery business the convenience and payback in fuel savings alone could be say 100km/day x 200 days = around $2000/yr (10c/kWh vs 1.30/litre) + much less maintenance.
Maybe it would suit a florist as flower arrangements are lightweight but bulky. You could always hire an ICE van for the 2 days a year (Valentines & Mothers day) when the EV would not suffice.

The 16kWh are stated the 10Wkh is implied.

Jspec imports are listing some as available for $12 to $13K, landed and complied (16Kw).   now at that price, they are looking very attractive!   would make a perfect second car, for me anyway.

Interesting how they don't show up with "electric" selected in fuel type
Had to type in "minicab" into keyword search field

No I haven't bought vehicle through J-Spec. But I do deal with many of their clients as we do compliancing. People find them to be easy to deal with and provide a good service.

On a side note.

Minicabs are now listed more realistically at $16990 Drive Away. Located Virginia Brisbane.
