Exactly Fat Charlie. The Mirage will have (not official yet) the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid vehicle sold in the US. Not only does it have a pretty great highway rating, the city rating also beats out any non-hybrid. That is saying something, especially to us. Estimated 44 mpg highway, thats only 1 mpg lower than my 04 Prius epa rating!

Oh, and the Mirage costs roughly HALF of what a Prius does... It really is going to be a super low-cost to own / run car.

They need to price it around $10k ... otherwise it won't sell.

Best guess right now is probably around $13k. But, we'll see! Currently the cheapest car you can get is the Versa sedan and its $13k+ after all the charges. I'm hoping they can beat that price.

I agree, they need to keep the price low for it to get noticed. Mitsu unfortunately is doing horrible in the US sales wise...

Who in their right mind would consider any other car than the Porsche Cayenne SS turbo Supercomfort trackday edition hybrid II?

Flippin typical - there I go posting about how it's going to fail here, yadda puff boo and what do I end up behind on my way home this afternoon ?



Looks nicer than I expected in the metal, and smaller than the pics suggest. Skinny tyres too . HD Video if you want a closer look.

And that's just the thing: you guys have always had piles of cheap, cheerful, efficient econoboxes to choose from. We used to, and then they sort of went away. Now, maybe they're coming back.

So I can understand why interest in this car might perplex someone who has a lot more to choose from in this category.

(Slight correction: we've always been able to buy cheap econoboxes, but the efficient ones went away. The ones that remained grew larger, heavier and thirstier every year.)
