2013 Honda Fit EV Starts at $36,625

The 2013 Honda Fit EV is having its world debut in LA and will be available by the summer. The Honda Fit EV is powered by a 20 kWh lithium-ion battery and a 92 kilowatt coaxial electric motor. It features a 3- mode electric drive system, adapted from the CR-Z Sport Hybrid and has a range of 123 city-mile per charge or a 76 mile range with combined city and highway driving. It will only take 3 hours to recharge the battery using a 240-volt outlet.

“The Fit EV is the next critical step in Honda’s portfolio approach to alternative fueled vehicles,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “There is no other automaker on the planet whose spirit is more deeply invested in the effort to realize a cleaner, more energy-efficient and ultimately more sustainable transportation future than Honda.”

The 2013 Fit EV’s pricing starts at $36,625 before any government incentives, with an estimated lease priced at $399 a month. Honda expects to only produce approximately 1,100 Fit EV’s over the next three years.
