(MMNA) announced on November 17, 2011, that its North American-spec i-MiEV, an all-electric vehicle (EV) produced by Mitsubishi Motors, has been named the most fuel-efficient EV by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s 2012 Fuel Economy Guide. MMNA is responsible for manufacturing and marketing operations for Mitsubishi Motors in the United States.

The EPA is a US administrative agency whose mission is to promote human health and protect the natural environment. The Fuel Economy Guide, published annually by the EPA and US Department of Energy (DOE), features information relating to the fuel economies of automobiles in the US market.

The Fuel Economy Guide provides fuel economy rankings as well as information on the fuel economy labels that vehicles are required to display on their window stickers at dealerships. The North American-spec i-MiEV drives 112 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in combined city and highway driving, 126 MPGe in the city, and 99 MPGe on the highway--the highest fuel economy among plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles.
