PSA and Mitsubishi may discontinue their electric vehicle partnership in the next 12 months, according to PSA CEO Carlos Tavares.

Speaking to a government body related to economic affairs, Tavares said that PSA would be re-evaluating the arrangement, which has PSA selling the Mitsubishi i-MiEV under the Citroen and Peugeot brands.

According to Reuters, sales of the PSA branded EVs are down dramatically, from a combined 6,222 units in 2013 to 1106 in 2014. Despite this, Tavares cited the strength of the yen as a possible factor for the partnership’s fate.

    To date, Mitsubishi has only sold 2160 i-MiEVs in the US and Canada from 2010 through 2014, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Mitsubishi kills their EV in North America as well.

    Hard to blame PSA for doing this.

      I saw one, once! It confused me momentarily.

      I’m also put in mind of the Leaf vs. Peugeot ______ on Top Gear. And how they didn’t really like either of them, but the Leaf was superior in every measurable way, and cheaper.
