For decades, Mitsubishi has been at the forefront of creating emissions-reducing technologies, electric cars, and hybrid vehicles designed to preserve and sustain the global environment. In recent years, with the production of Outlander PHEV, Mitsubishi has focused on Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology—pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with hybrids.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV & our eco history

In 2009, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV was introduced to multiple markets worldwide as the very first highway-capable electric car. This unique Mitsubishi electric car made its U.S. debut a short time later, in 2012, under the name Mitsubishi i, and was named “Greenest Vehicle of the Year” by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
The i-MiEV was named after the technology that helped bring the car to life: Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology. The result of four decades of research, MiEV technology is an integrated management system that optimizes the flow of energy throughout the car, distributes incoming energy from the regenerative brakes, and continually regulates the output from the battery. Simply put, MiEV is an automatic co-pilot that ensures all systems are, well, green.
While the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is no longer available in North America, Mitsubishi is proud to continue its sustainability efforts with Outlander PHEV—the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV2.
