MONTICELLO (New Everyone seems to think an EV isn t right for them, or boring to which is a completely normal After all, the automobile and big engines have been a of freedom for ages; you can go wherever you whenever you want, by simply up with gasoline.

You can t do that an electric vehicle. You must your itinerary ahead, you avoid high-speed travelling as as possible, and if you re lucky to find a charger along the way, you ll to sit around and wait a few hours to This requires a change of habits, something we re not yet ready

That s too bad, because EVs are darn good. Like 2013 Honda Fit EV.

No, it s not available in and it s easy to figure out why. So far year, January through Honda sold only 300 (Civic, CR-Z, Insight) Toyota moved out more 7,000 copies of the Prius. The introduced 2014 Honda Plug-In Hybrid is also a for Canada, although we will get the hybrid version.

The Fit EV has what it to do battle with the 2013 LEAF. In the US, its range is rated by the EPA at 82 (or 131 km), while the LEAF is at 75 miles (or 120 km). The Fit is equipped a 123-hp electric motor and a battery pack.

Thanks to the instant torque of an electric powertrain, this EV like it accelerates as swiftly as a Civic, and has more than muscle to zip through urban

The 2013 Honda Fit EV also a three-mode drive system, NORMAL, SPORT and ECON The latter limits output to 63 hp and the climate control system s in order to achieve maximum range.

A 6.6-kW charger is on (same capacity as the 2013 LEAF) which, according to the allows the car to be fully charged in than three hours a 240V outlet. If you re stuck a regular 120V household you ll have to wait for about 15 to juice up. You can also check charging times and remotely the A/C or heater from your by downloading a free app.

On the road in the Catskills region of New the Fit EV was refined and quiet, and its road were comparable to those in a gas-powered Fit, although the car can t its 600-lb weight disadvantage. other EVs such as the BMW i3, the Honda s braking system isn t tuned aggressively, so coasting doesn t like you ve left the parking engaged. If that s your though, you can simply push the lever into the B position.

In this car was actually very to drive.

As is the case with Honda models, your efforts are awarded with instrument pod illumination, and little appear on the trip computer congratulating you on your energy

In the 2013 Honda Fit EV, you benefit all the equipment that s available in versions, in addition to automatic control. That includes (which is offered in the US but not in Canada), a camera, a leather-wrapped wheel, front seats, a 160-watt with USB port and Bluetooth as well as the usual plethora of and electronic driving aids.

On the hand, the Fit EV s cargo capacity from 585 to 340 litres with the seat in place, and from to 1,393 litres with the folded. So, versatility suffers to accommodate the battery pack, but you can squeeze more gear in the Fit in the LEAF. And the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. And the Volt. And the Ford Focus

A Toyota RAV4 EV has more space, but that s another vehicle Canada doesn t Since we re on the subject, we can t get a Fiat either. Ironic, since our is cheaper and produced more

Not getting the Fit EV in is a shame, but not a crying shame. competition is always better for the but frankly, only a handful of are buying electric vehicles now. Those early have accepted to change vision of the automobile, and probably all warm and fuzzy inside time they pass by a gas

As good as the 2013 Honda Fit EV is, and we it s just as competent as the Nissan most consumers just t ready for it yet.
