On February 15, 2024, PT Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Sales Indonesia (MMKSI) announced the start of sales of the Mitsubishi L100 in Indonesia, priced from IDR 320 million OTR Jakarta (Special price until April 2024). Its local production began in December 2023.

Known as the Minicab EV in Japan, the new Indonesia-made L100 is a 2-seaters electric blind van. Normal charging at AC200V (15A) takes around 7.5 hours to fully charge the battery, while the fast charging can charge the battery to 80% in approximately 42 minutes.

Compared to the previous model sold in Japan, the new L100’s drive battery capacity has been increased by 26%. The motor and inverter have been integrated into one unit to increase motor efficiency, resulting in a cruising range of 180 km (in WLTC mode) per charge, which is a 20% increase. 

The L100 comes equipped with a 20.1 kWh battery and an electric motor that delivers 31-kW and 195-Nm torque. Its top speed is at 100 km/h.

From the results of the proof of concept (POC) carried out with partners, the L100 EV claims advantages both in terms of product and operations. PT Pos Indonesia as one of the implementing partners in POC activities has expressed further intentions to use the L100 EV in logistics operational activities at the Capital City of the Archipelago (IKN) hub.

MMKSI made this announcement at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2024. Among its highlight models was the Xforce SUV.

The newly developed HEV system features EV driving, hybrid driving, and regenerative braking. High fuel efficiency and a powerful, exhilarating motor drive are achieved by having the system automatically switch to the optimal driving mode according to the driving conditions and remaining drive battery.

The generator and an electric motor with a maximum output of 116 PS / 255 Nm torque are combined with a dedicated drive battery and the newly developed 1.6 L DOHC 16-valve MIVEC4 gasoline engine that delivers 95 PS and peak torque of 134 Nm. It adopts a high expansion ratio cycle (Atkinson cycle) to achieve a higher level of combustion efficiency while also incorporating the first electric water pump ever used in a Mitsubishi Motors engine to reduce mechanical loss. 

EV Priority and Charge drive modes allow drivers to choose EV driving at will. The other 5 drive modes, namely Normal, Tarmac, Gravel, Mud, and Wet, deliver optimal handling and driving force according to road conditions.
