1. Mitsubishi i-MiEV - 588 Units Sold

And the honors of the worst-selling vehicle of 2012 goes to Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV, the Japanese automaker’s electric car offering. Only 588 units sold last year, as the subcompact vehicle struggled to pick up ground even though it’s under $30,000. Despite being the must fuel-efficient car offered in America with a 126 MPGe rating in the city and 99 on the highway, the i-MiEV’s disappointing crash ratings and poor range has resulted in poor sales.

    If the Lancer Sportback was priced competitively, it would sell.  It looks good among the hatchbacks, it’s just not worth the money.  Also, autoguide, why include the GT-R, but not ?  Was this only including cars below $100K?

    The Acura ZDX is undisputed the worst vehicle on that list,When you take into consideration how big/respected a manufacturer Acura is and how identical it was to the MDX in everything but functionality/usability.

    Take an MDX don’t make it any lighter, faster, better turning, don’t give it improved fuel economy, then take away usable rear seats and storage space. It has the same basic shape of a Pontiac Aztek but is nowhere near as useful.

    awful awful awful design, in 87 years it’s easily going to be a top contender for the worst vehicle of the century. It represents ALL the bad characteristics of the CUV craze, it’s fantastically bad, almost comically bad. It’s like it’s a troll vehicle just made to lambaste the crossovers concept.
