This is accomplished in a highly efficient package that can comfortably seat five adults. In addition, the Mitsubishi Concept Global Small achieves top-of-class fuel efficiency, with CO2 emissions in the mid-90g/km range due to:
* Usage of an idling stop mechanism
* A 1.0 Ė 1.2L class compact engine equipped with a regenerative braking system
* Weight trimming to the most complex parts
* Reduced running resistance in the engine, new-generation CVT, brakes, and tyres
* A body shape that greatly reduces aerodynamic resistance
