    For comparison, 2011 models:

    Cty/Hwy MPGe : Vehicle
    106/92 : Nissan LEAF
    95/90 : Chevy Volt
    94/79 : Smart fourtwo

    Cty/Hwy kWh/100mi : Vehicle
    32/37 : Nissan LEAF
    36/37 : Chevy Volt
    36/43 : Smart fourtwo


    The Mitsubishi is impressively efficient, especially in the city. The light weight and small frontal area must help a lot. Can someone post Tesla Roadster numbers? I'm sure someone has them handy. :)

    Tesla Roadster numbers:

    124/112 City/Hwy MPGe.

    So the Mitsubishi just beats it in the city. But the Roadster still wins on the highway, and in the combined number.

    since mpg is kind of a length unit, have the bars in the chart run from left to right. And add an indicator on top that "to the right" is better.

    And stop waving your mouse cursor over the image when you screen capture it. You get those damned text bubbles over top. :tongue:
