  • The Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the 12 most environmentally-friendly vehicles on the organization's annual "Greenest Vehicles" list
  • The Mirage is the only conventional gasoline-powered vehicle to make the list
  • Mitsubishi Mirage is the most fuel efficient gasoline-powered non-hybrid vehicle in America

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.'s (MMNA) highly fuel efficient Mirage 5-door hatchback has been named to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy's (ACEEE) prestigious "Greenest Vehicles" list as part of the organization's Greenercars.org rankings for the 2015 model year. The Mirage is the only conventional gasoline-powered vehicle – not a hybrid, EV, PHEV or natural gas-powered vehicle – to make the list this year.*

With a starting MSRP of only $12,995 and an EPA fuel rating of 40 mpg combined city and highway (37 mpg city/44 mpg highway), the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most fuel efficient gasoline-powered non-hybrid vehicle available in America. Furthermore, every Mirage comes with Mitsubishi Motors' outstanding warranty, one of the industry's most comprehensive protection plans. Coverage includes a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty, 5-year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty, 7-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty and 5-years/unlimited miles roadside assistance.

"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 Vice President of MMNA. "With its low price, plentiful features, exceptional fuel economy and extensive warranty, the Mitsubishi Mirage offers automotive consumers an unprecedented new-car value."

The ACEEE's Greenercars.org annually assesses the environmental friendliness of production vehicles available in the United States. The website analyzes a vehicle's lifecycle greenhouse gas and the EPA's criteria pollutant emissions consisting of carbon monoxide, lead, ground-level ozone, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and nitrogen oxides to determine each vehicle's Green Score.
