Today Mitsubishi yet again announced that its i-MiEv was officially recognized for its fuel efficiency, this time in another country, Canada.

The i-MiEV was chosen by Canada’s Ministry of Natural Resources (NRCan), as the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the subcompact class.  Also, according to NRCan, the I-MiEV is Canada’s most fuel-efficient car among all cars not only in its class, but also in other classes.

The 2012 Mitsubishi i is powered by Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology, the rear-wheel drive vehicle’s drive system includes a 49 kW (66 bhp) AC synchronous electric motor; an 88 cell, 330V lithium-ion battery pack for a peak storage of 16 kWh; and a single fixed reduction gear transmission. It has a top speed of approximately 80 mph and a driving range of about 85 miles/charge.

Just less than 2 weeks ago, the Mitsubishi i took top spot on ACEEE’s “Greenest Vechicles of 2012″ List.  And last year, the i-Miev was ranked #1 on the EPA’s list of “Fuel Economy Leaders: 2012 Model Year” in the governmental agency’s annual Fuel Economy Guide.

Recently, Mitsubishi has announced a price adjustment to the 2012 Mitsubishi i. It now has a starting net value of $21,625 and $23,625 for the premium SE model. Net value is calculated after $7,500 federal tax credit.
