Honda Fit EV Heads East Nissan Leaf Simply

The small Honda Fit EV. with combined city/highway estimated range rating of 82-miles, of has only been available for in California and Oregon. Those who been clamoring (?) for one of this electric cars along the seaboard can now climb into one as via plans by the automaker to release selected markets in Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, and New Jerse y.

Though we can t imagine there s a demand for it, Honda seems to at least a few folks will be to throw down a lease of $389 per month over a three-year coming out to a MSRP of $36,625. is pretty steep for a small EV this, especially when you it up against the Nissan Leaf, who s level model is pricing When modified by select and state tax credits, it can take the price down as well by a $10,000.

One other zinger as well for leasing one of the Fit EVs you have to return the car your three year ends. That s right ponying up a little over to Honda you don t get the option to buy the electric after it is all said and done. makes you wonder why Honda is cough, cough, compliance cough .

Now if we seem a little sarcastic it comes to the Fit EV, do understand first we what the vehicle has to offer in of green car road specifications, combined adjusted EPA mile-per-gallon-equivalency of 118 MPGe and an energy-consumption rating of 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 What we aren t so thrilled on is the Honda isn t allowing buyers the of keeping the all-electric Fit on the road it is at the end of the day. It seems mostly like a half-hearted attempt by to meet emissions regulations in certain states.

Under the hood the Fit EV  is an drivetrain which features a lithium-Ion battery and a 92-kilowatt horsepower) AC synchronous electric that generates 189 ft-lb of This powertrain is teamed to a with a fully-independent suspension and a 3-mode drive system.

Honda notes the car also with an onboard charger allows the vehicle to be plugged any household-type 120-volt outlet  or an 240-volt AC power supply. connected to a 240-volt circuit, the Fit EV can reportedly be recharged in less three hours from a low indicator illumination point.
