The new Mitsubishi i MiEV Electric car for 2014 is priced to make it competitive with any gas powered vehicle you may now drive.
Mitsubishi is committed to creating vehicles that deliver both driving enjoyment and environmental responsibility.
Vehicles that can exist in total harmony with people, society and our planet.
It’s the simple elegance of moving through space with minimal impact. Or the ingenuity of the first V6 crossover that seats seven and still meets strict partial zero-emissions vehicle standards. It’s about alternative fuels, electric vehicles and employing innovative production techniques to protect the environment before our vehicles even hit the road.
Mitsubishi is committed to a new era for cars and our planet, and our ongoing pledge to make the world a better place to live and drive.
Mitsubishi Motors is not only committed to building cleaner cars, they are also employing innovative production techniques to protect the environment before our vehicles even hit the road.
All models produced at the new facility in Normal, Illinois, are equipped with injection-molded bumper fascias made of fully-recyclable polypropylene plastic.

Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC) emissions in 2005 were 75% below EPA- permitted levels and 62% below 2000 levels.
Average water discharge of heavy metals is holding steady at 50% of 2000 levels.
2006 CO2 emissions were 40% lower than in 2002.
Mitsubishi has developed “green plastic” derived from vegetable oil based resin and have developed the first automotive interior material made of bamboo fiber and Polybutylene Succinate (PBS).
They are preserving the plant and wildlife habitats around our facility in Normal, Illinois. Our Prairie – Restoration Project, with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, is restoring 3.1 acres to prairie grass and wildflowers and helping to preserve the local wildlife.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Mitsubishi Motors and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries with a 2007 Climate Protection Award for the power-saving automotive air conditioning unit to be used in the Outlander.
While the jury is still out on the best way for automakers to minimize the environmental impact of their products, Mitsubishi Motors has its eyes on the future and is geared to respond.
Mitsubishi Motors is now fleet-testing the i-MiEV (Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle) in cooperation with power companies, and plans to launch the vehicle in the Japanese market in late 2009. Featuring the latest, state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, i-MiEV jumps from 0 to 100 kms faster than its gasoline format, on its way to a top speed of 132 km/h. And in ideal conditions, the i-MiEV gets up to 155 kilometers on a full charge*. It is now here in the U.S.
At the Canadian corporate headquarters, they have taken positive steps to reduce paper. The executive committee receives documents electronically. And our company-wide newsletter is also electronic.
They recycle paper in their offices. Press kits and customer direct mail are primarily electronic.
And Mitsubishi promote the return of parts packaging by using racks and boxes that can be compressed to a fraction of their original size after delivery. Even they recycle pallets and are further reducing the use of wood by actively converting containers for parts shipment to steel, all in an effort to make the new Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Cars the most cost efficient and green vehicle on the road today.
