The i-MiEV electric mini car has only just gone on sale in North America but already Mitsubishi is looking to expand its offering of EVs.

Speaking at a shareholder meeting in Tokyo Mitsubishi Motors president Osamu Masuko commented that the automaker is currently studying whether to produce electric versions of cars other than mini-cars like the iMiEV. Possible candidates could include the new Global Small Car Concept as well as the Colt sub-compact.

The automaker’s immediate plans in the electric vehicle segment include two new minicars based on the i-MiEV, including a more budget-oriented version of the original, as well as the Minicab-MiEV designed for light commercial duty.
