112 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent)

The 2012 Mitsubishi i (what it’s called here) is the most efficient DOT-legal vehicle for sale in the U.S. market, with an official MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) rating of 112.

The i’s driving range is shaping up to be about ten miles shorter than the Nissan Leaf—which is all the more impressive considering its 16 kWh battery capacity, versus the Leaf’s 24 kWh. Simply put, the Mitsubishi is even greener in this respect.

While the official EPA range for the i is 62 miles, Mitsubishi says that a real-world range of 85 to 89 miles is possible with gentle driving and light use of accessories. With very cautious driving and no accessory use, some MiEVs have seen just over 100 miles on a charge. Our editorial team will update this after our first longer-term loan of an i, but in a first drive we were on track for seeing about 75 miles from a charge, in somewhat gentle driving.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
