with 40+ MPG
The recipe for the 2012 Mitsubishi i goes something like this: Take one award-winning small car sold in Europe and Asia, and add an electric powertrain to the mix. Sell 10,000 units. Take everything you've learned from the experience, make a few modifications to meet U.S. safety requirements, and then bring your zero-emissions electric vehicle (EV) to American shores. Sound appetizing so far? We think so. With a compelling rear-wheel 5-door hatch-bubble that seats four, emits zero emissions, is rated at 126 highway/99 city mpg equivalent (MPGe) and costs less than any other EV on the market, Mitsubishi could have something very sweet on their hands.
