Earth Day Highlights Mitsubishi's Continuing Progress in Fuel-Efficiency

Over forty years ago, a movement started that is as prevalent today as it was in 1970.  The movement began during a time of anti-war rallies and gathered strength from the passion Americans were demonstrating. Every year on this date, April 22, we celebrate the movement by trying to further its goals of a clean, sustainable future.

To celebrate this year's Earth Day, we will be participating in the Hilliard Earth Festival and Green on the Green, and bringing a Mitsubishi Mirage for demonstrations.  The Hilliard celebration takes place Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Roger A. Reynolds Municipal Park (3800 Veterans Memorial Drive, Hilliard, OH, 43026), and Green on the Green is Saturday, May 3 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Worthington (http://www.greenonthegreen.com/).

Whether youre trying to reduce your carbon footprint or save money on gas, fuel efficiency is becoming more of a reality in our vehicles each day. Mitsubishi is leading the charge with the Mirage, the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid car in the United States, and the i-MiEV, Mitsubishis all-electric car. In a recent blog post, we highlighted Mitsubishis achievements in engineering for the future (read here).

With the highest rated miles-per-gallon in the U.S. (37 mpg city/44 mpg highway), the Mitsubishi Mirage will save you money at the pump and lower your “carbon tire print.” The i-MiEV boasts an impressive 99-126 miles-per-gallon equivalent (112 mpge average according to Mitsubishi Motors) with an EPA-tested range of 62 miles. Redesigned from the Japanese version of the electric car, the U.S. version has a larger body and improved safety features, including advanced airbags, and is currently the lowest-priced electric car.
