Press Release : Honda Fit EV Makes World Debut at Los Angeles Auto Show

Honda unveiled the Fit EV Concept electric vehicle at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show. This year at the same Auto Show, Honda unveiled the all-new 2013 Fit EV production model, which is expected to be available to the U.S market in the middle of next year.

The 2013 Honda Fit is built based on the Fit hatchback.  Therefore, the exterior dimensions of the Fit EV are identical to the gasoline-powered Fit with the addition of a higher hip point to accommodate the under floor placement of the 20 kWh battery.

Interior, the Fit EV features a spacious and versatile cabin with comfortable seating for up to five passengers.

Powered by a 20 kWh lithium-ion battery and a 92 kilowatt coaxial electric motor.  The 2013 Honda Fit EV offers an estimated driving range of 123-miles on a single charge.  Honda anticipates a combined city/highway EV range of 76 miles on the new Fuel Economy labels.

The Fit EV offers the driver the driving modes, Econ, Normal and Sport.  Each mode changes the driving experience from maximizing the efficiency to improve acceleration.  In Econ mode, driving range can increase by as much as 17-percent compared to driving in Normal mode.  Acceleration improves significantly when in Sport mode.

One cool thing about the Fit EV is its Telematics and Interactive Remote.  The telematics system that allows the driver to stay connected through a smartphone, personal computer or interactive remote.  Through the Fit EV smartphone and computer applications, the driver can remotely view the vehicles state of charge, initiate charging and activate the air conditioning and heater, to pre-condition the vehicle while connected to the grid which maximizes battery range on start-up.  The interactive remote does not require an internet or mobile connection to operate however the driver must be within 100 feet  of the vehicle.

The Honda Fit EV is expected to be launched in summer of 2012 with one available exclusive color, Reflection Blue Pearl.  Its Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $36,625 with an estimated lease priced at $399 a month.

See “Press Release” for more details on the Fit EV and leasing information.
