talking about its power source.
Say hello to the all-new 2012 Mitsubishi i, the fully-electric EV that’s as electric to drive
as it is to charge. With zero on-road emissions and an astonishing 112 combined MPGe1
(that’s miles per gallon equivalent, the new EPA ranking system for electric and alternative
energy vehicles), the Mitsubishi i was named “The Greenest Vehicle of 2012” by the ACEEE
(American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy). Think that’s good news? It gets even
better. Because at a price as low as $21,6252 after federal tax incentives, it’s also the most
affordable EV in America.

been this much fun.
Hop in, put your foot down and discover surprising acceleration thanks to Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV)
technology—our groundbreaking integrated management system that delivers an exhilarating blend of performance and
economy. And to help keep more power on tap, the Mitsubishi i comes with a brake energy regeneration system that
captures kinetic energy during deceleration to recharge the battery as you drive. Add to that the safety of an advanced
airbag system3, the security of knowing your main drive lithium-ion battery is covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles, and
the Mitsubishi i could be the ideal solution for those who want to drive as many green miles as possible.

The Mitsubishi i’s custom 16 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivers responsive power, a long air-
cooled life and convenient charging when you use the included Level 1 charging cable,4 which
plugs into a standard 120V outlet and produces a full charge in about 22 hours. For faster charging,
we recommend the optional home charging dock, which provides a full charge in just 7 hours. Plus,
your Mitsubishi i can be equipped with an available public quick-charger port that connects to
CHAdeMO Level 3 public chargers to deliver an 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.

1 Based on 2012 EPA Annual Fuel Economy Guide mileage estimates for electric vehicles. Actual mileage equivalents may
vary.
2 The Mitsubishi i is the most affordable electric vehicle in America. And with a federal tax incentive, it’s even more
affordable. ES TRIM: $29,125 MSRP - $7,500 federal tax credit = $21,625 after tax credit. SE TRIM: $31,125 MSRP - $7,500
federal tax credit = $23,625 after tax credit. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. Excludes destination/handling, tax,
title, license etc. Retailer price, terms and vehicle availability may vary. See your Mitsubishi retailer for details. Destination/
handling charges for Mitsubishi i $850; Alaska/Hawaii $975. Tax savings subject to rules and availability. Taxpayer must
incur federal tax liability to receive full benefit. Consult your tax professional. Actual prices set by retailer.
3 Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always
wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and
under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear facing infant restraint in the front seat. See
your owner’s manual and instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.
4 Before your first charge, we require a site inspection of your garage to ensure that your electrical infrastructure is
adequate and that you have a dedicated 15A outlet.
5
$300 MSRP extra charge for 2-tone.
6 Based upon various EPA testing methods using different driving conditions and climate controls; the EPA rated the
Mitsubishi i with a driving range of 62 miles per charge. Actual range will vary depending on driving/charging habits,
speed, conditions, weather, temperature, use of A/C and heater and battery age. Gradual loss of battery capacity will
result with time and use.
7 Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive
responsibly and obey all traffic laws.
8 All coverage terms are from the original in-service date. See retailer for limited warranty and roadside assistance terms
and conditions.
