More than 17,000 vehicles with technology like the Mitsubishi i have already sold outside the U.S., and Mitsubishi is hoping this news will push the i’s sales forward in the States as well. “We are very pleased to see that the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy [7] have rated the 2012 Mitsubishi i as the top fuel economy leader in its annual Fuel Economy Guide,” said Mitsubishi Motors North America CEO Yoichi Yokozawa.
