2013 Honda Fit EV to arrive at CT Honda Dealers
On the heels of Connecticut’s Electric Car Community Days the Environmental Protection Agency just awarded the 2013 Honda Fit EV the highest fuel efficiency rating ever.
Honda‘s subcompact electric vehicle’s combined EPA rating is 118 mpg, offers an estimated 123-mile range and can be fully recharged in as little as three hours. The Fit EV uses a 240-volt circuit, consumes only 29 kilowatt hours of electricity per 100 miles and has an EPA rated annual fuel cost of $500. The EPA estimates the Fit’s combined city and highway driving range rating at 82 miles on a single charge. In comparison, Honda says the electric Ford Focus has a combined adjusted mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 105 mpg and a 76-mile range, while the Nissan Leaf at dealers in CT has a combined rating of 99 mpg and a 73-mile range.
The Honda Fit is ranked 1 out of 41 Affordable Small Cars by US News. This ranking is based on an analysis of 37 published reviews and test drives of the Honda Fit, and an analysis of reliability and safety data.
Families sometimes skip small cars, thinking that going for a small car means compromising on space. “That’s not the case with the 2012 Honda Fit. The Fit has a Magic Seat that lets you haul anything from a bike to a tall plant in the back seat, and that’s in addition to the space in the rear cargo area,” according to Jason Hocking, manager of the staff at Executive Honda in Wallingford. “With space for three passengers or two car seats, all that utility and passenger space, and the Fit’s outstanding safety scores it also earned Best Hatchback and Subcompact Car for Families Awards,” adds Mike Plummer of Liberty Honda in Harford.
The official date of arrival will be announced soon. For updates please contact Liberty Honda or contact Executive Honda. See more on Electric, Hybrid & Alternative Fuel Vehicles in CT.
