Popular Mechanics



The 2012 Mitsubishi i is one of the smallest, lightest vehicles for sale in the U.S. market. But that shouldn't keep you from considering this innovative electric vehicle.

In addition to roof-mounted side-impact airbags and seat-mounted side bags, the 2012 Mitsubishi i includes standard electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and a Brake Override system that prioritizes the brake pedal over the accelerator. It also includes LATCH connectors in the back seat, for mounting infant and booster seats.

In Euro NCAP testing—the benchmark for safety in Europe—the i-MiEV earned a decent four out of five stars overall. Although it's unlikely that the federal government will make the I part of its testing for 2012, we hope to update this safety assessment as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) might perform some of its tests.

Conclusion

There's no reason to believe that the 2012 Mitsubishi i electric car is any less safe than other small cars its size.

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.
