The 2013 Honda Fit EV has received EPA’s mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe. It is the highest fuel-efficiency rating ever given by the EPA. EPA rated annual fuel cost is just $500. The Fit EV also has a low consumption rating of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles.
The Fit EV’s 20-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is good for an estimated driving range rating of 82-miles, allowing the Fit EV to surpass the EPA efficiency and range ratings of the Ford Focus Electric (105 MPGe, 76-mile range), Nissan Leaf (99 MPGe, 73-mile range), and Mitsubishi i-MiEV (112 MPGe, 62-mile range).
The Fit EV’s 123 horsepower coaxial electric motor generates 189 ft-lb of torque, and is teamed to a chassis with a fully-independent suspension and a driver-selectable 3-mode electric drive system adapted from the CR-Z Sport Hybrid.
The Honda Fit EV will be available for lease this summer in limited locations in California and Oregon.
