When the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy published its annual “Greenest Vehicles” list, we were pleased to see the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage among the award winners. We were pleased, but not surprised.
The five-door hatchback earned its place on the list with its 1.2-liter engine and continuously variable automatic transmission. According to estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency, the 2015 model earns 44 mpg on the highway and 37 in the city for a combined rating of 40 mpg.
It is the only vehicle to earn a spot on the list using traditional gasoline power as opposed to an alternative powertrain, a testament to the advanced engineering used to build the Mirage’s traditional powertrain.
“We are pleased to see our 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage named to the ACEEE’s ‘Greenest Vehicles’ list, and we look forward to launching more new innovative and affordably-priced environmentally-friendly vehicles in the future,” said Don Swearingen, executive VP for Mitsubishi Motors North America.
He goes on to state that, “with its low price, plentiful features, exceptional fuel economy and extensive warranty, the Mitsubishi Mirage offers automotive consumers an unprecedented new-car value.”
