10 Best 40 MPG-or-Better Cars of 2013

3. 2013 Mitsubishi i
MSRP: $21,625
Miles per gallon: 126 city, 99 highway, 112 combined.
Electric charge range: 80 miles

First off, yes, Mitsubishi is still selling cars in America. It's not selling many of them, mind you, now that its offerings are down to the Galant, Lancer, Outlander and this pint-sized electric vehicle, but it's still selling them.

Until Smart's ED hits the market, the I, formerly known as the MiEV, holds the crown as the most affordable pure-electric car sold in the U.S. It's also surprisingly big on the inside for a car so puny, with more than 50 cubic feet of cargo space once the rear seats are folded down.

That 80-mile range is nothing to sniff at, either; it's better than what the Leaf and the Focus offer. Remote-controlled pre-heating and pre-cooling, turn-by-turn navigation, a rearview camera and brakes that recharge the battery as they slow the car all make the I a worthy electric option. Whether Mitsubishi stays in the U.S. long enough for most Americans to enjoy it is anyone's guess.
