The Mitsubishi I electric car tops the fuel economy list

The 2012 Mitsubishi i electric vehicle has scored first-place honors on the EPA's list of "Fuel Economy Leaders: 2012 Model Year" in the governmental agency's annual Fuel Economy Guide thanks to its EPA-rated 112 combined/126 city/99 highway MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). The Nissan Leaf scored second, with a combined rating of 99 mpg-e. Following the Leaf is the Ford Transit Connect Electric, with 62 mpg-e and the Chevrolet Volt, at 60 mpg-e. The rest of the top-ten list consists of hybrid vehicles. At a combined rating of 50 miles per gallon, the Toyota Prius continues to be the highest-rated vehicle powered by a conventional internal combustion engine. The EPA’s guide also rates the vehicles with the worst fuel mileage. Bottom honors go to the 12-cylinder Aston Martin DBS and DB9, with a combined average of 13 mpg combined. However, dominating the basement is Mercedes-Benz: The S600, S65, AMGCL600, and CL65 AMG, all share a combined rating of 14 miles per gallon. The E63 AMG wagon does slightly better with an 18 mpg combined rating.
