2013 Honda Fit EV

Three drive modes, Econ, Normal and Sport, tailor the Fit EV’s powertrain to fit a driver’s intended style. Honda is most proud of Econ, which the automaker says can add as much as 17 miles to the car’s range when engaged. To charge the Fit EV, Honda says a 240-volt setup can replenish the battery in just three hours.

In addition to the aforementioned class-leading range, the Fit EV also possesses the second highest mpg equivalent rating that the EPA has ever awarded to an EV: 118 MPGe.

Looking the part

Fit EV generally mirrors its standard sibling, although its hip point is raised slightly to accommodate the battery. One color, Reflection Blue Pearl, will be available. Front and rear fascias are revised to aid aerodynamics, as are unique alloy wheels.

Inside, bio-fabric is friendlier to the environment than standard cloth.

To help drivers keep tabs on the propulsion system, the Fit EV features illuminated meters for the battery’s state of charge and driving range. An upgraded on-board telematics system teams up with a standard navigation system to let drivers alter charging even if they aren’t in the same location as the vehicle thanks to a mobile application and a website. Drivers can even set the Fit EV’s heater to turn on to pre-warm the car.

It Is Easy Being Green

Contrary to what Kermit might say, selecting an electric-powered Fit over its conventional counterpart requires relatively few sacrifices. The battery pack’s placement under the car results in a three-inch higher floor, which decreases cargo space behind the rear seats from 20.6 to 12 cubic feet – fold down the rear seats, though and there#039;s an impressive 49.4 cubes available. Furthermore, the extra weight of the batteries does relatively little to dilute the Fit’s nimble, fun-to-drive handling dynamics.

One casualty of the electrification process is the Magic Seat system, which allows the rear seat bottom to flip forward in the normal Fit. The rear seatbacks can still fold flat, however, so the Fit EV retains a decent amount of cargo versatility to compliment its ability to seat five occupants in comfort.

Standard Features

The Fit EV comes handsomely equipped with a standard navigation system with a 6.5-inch display screen and FM Traffic, a 160-watt, six-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, full power accessories, automatic climate control and 15-inch alloy wheels.
