Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., (MMNA), is proud to announce that the company’s innovative and fun-to-drive 2012 Mitsubishi i electric vehicle has scored first-place honors on the EPA’s list of “Fuel Economy Leaders: 2012 Model Year” in the governmental agency’s annual Fuel Economy Guide thanks to its astonishing EPA-rated 112 combined/126 city/99 highway MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent)*.
According to the EPA’s website, the Fuel Economy Guide is “an annual publication containing the fuel economy estimates for all cars and light trucks. The guide includes much more information that appears on the window sticker alone. It includes information about alternative fueled vehicles, the range of fuel economy for different classes of vehicles, a list of fuel economy leaders, and tips for improving fuel economy.”
The annual Fuel Economy Guide is published jointly by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE).
“We are very pleased to see that the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have rated the 2012 Mitsubishi i as the top fuel economy leader in its annual Fuel Economy Guide,” said Yoichi Yokozawa, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA). “With 17,000 i-MiEV-based units** produced for various international markets, we look forward to providing North American consumers with an exceptionally well-engineered electric vehicle that has proven itself to be reliable, safe, efficient and very affordable in overall price and cost of operation.”
