You can’t buy Honda’s 2014 Fit EV in America

By Parks McCants


2014 Honda Fit EV

that may read a bit strangely to the loyal and electric car enthusiasts, only true electric car in North America is not for sale. we look at the 2014 Fit EV.

As Honda enters the electric car arena, it to light that the only all electric car in the Honda line up be painfully limited in production and to a very exclusive group of qualified” lessees. It becomes apparent that Honda’s for future automotive development is in the not too distant future FCEV and Civic, Accord, CR-V, and 2015 Fit and Vezel Hybrids.

Honda for reasons known to Honda has limited the production of the Fit EV to 40 cars per month.

According to the website, production of the Fit Ev will be to 1100 units in the first 2 With distribution limited to Oregon, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland and Rhode My guess is these states alternative fueled vehicle tax and express lane privileges.

For market placement is one of calculated logical and strategic progression.

We know that West Los Angeles and Orange County has the emission standard in the U.S.; New York and the Eastern Seaboard a second.

Torrance, Ca. is home to American Honda Motors and a few hours of Sacramento, Ca. resides advocate and alternative transportation Governor Jerry Brown.

has partnered with Honda on projects as demonstrated recently by the $100 million matching hydrogen refueling network.

Apparently Honda remains optimistic as to the marketability of a ‘ true’ -alone EV.

We at Honda-Torque News this revelation to be a bit disheartening, but a marketing standpoint acknowledge caution.

For those fortunate to secure a lease on the Fit EV, Honda is a 3-year/ $259 month with $259 + tax, and delivery at time of signing.

the bottom line we discover the ‘release’ is limited. Actually the fine print we discover Honda has no intention of releasing or a buy-out at the end of lease.

Interestingly this program appears to be a experiment on behalf of American Motors. As of today, the February of the Fit EV is leased out. It becomes apparent that America is willing and able to purchase the Fit EV.

Looking to the specifications of the car we find the Fit EV to be as to stated torque, range and technological advances.

As with all EVs, Honda the end user that actual MPG e vary, and will be affected by in temperature, driving conditions, speed. etc… What we do is Honda’s lithium-Ion battery and integrated “quick charge” Honda is including a home 220 amp charging station as part of the package. Charging time?

3/ 6

Note: The quick charge will take the batteries to 17% in 30 from the low battery warning.

For range, Honda has integrated a 3 drive mode button. affords the driver an economy, drive and performance option needed for passing. You’ll find this option in the Accord Hybrid and FX-R Hybrid.

The “ Earth Dreams” electric motor is rated at 92 KW and 189 lb-ft pounds of torque. To put into perspective, a gasoline Fit produces 107 lb-ft pounds; 70% than the electric variant.

The car delivers torque off the line and the driving range. For those to read the Fit EV’s specifications, you can them here. The rest of the car is all Fit.

You will either the Fit or you won’t. Improved for 2014-2015, find a nicer ‘soft interior, decent finishes and an suspension ride. And of course, electronic personal interface to none.

Including a cellphone to time or turn off the charger

The majority of our readers have a very positive ownership with the gasoline variant Fit We have no reason to believe the Fit EV will not live up to Honda standards. However, until or another major automotive steps up to the plate with a produced and marketed EV, the car will in line with other EV cult classics.

While a viable EV doesn’t to be the size of a Tesla S. or have the to beat a Corvette at the drag to be successful in the U.S. it does to hit the market at an affordable price with a battery pack will live the distance of car ownership.

In the U.S. a rising of initial investment has dictated an length of title for most car An EV with a substantially higher cost of investment can’t be the to the rule. For EVs to take a prominent in the future of automotive history, technological and subsiquent development jump light years as to capacity and discharge rates.

We are that battery development and cell body panel as demonstrated by Volvo will the next generation of affordable, range and long life soon. Very soon
