“Jonesing” for a Honda Fit EV? Here’s Your Fix
If you’re looking for a new electric car, you may have been unhappy when Honda announced they were getting out of the vertical for a few years. But according to the sharper minds at the Car and Driver Blog.com, if you’re craving some Honda EV, you can still pickup a Honda Fit electric car:
If you were really hoping to get your hands on a plug-in Fit, Honda just announced that it will extend the Fit EV lease program by two years, for both current and prospective customers.
This means that, for $199 per month, you’ll get to silently glide about in Honda’s 118-MPGe hatchback with an EPA-estimated 82-mile battery range. That monthly bill, reduced $60 from the previous offer, includes unlimited mileage, routine maintenance, and collision coverage, says the automaker.
Now before you head out to get your Fit fill, keep in mind that what is available are 2013 and 2014 models. No 2015’s. Also remember that the Fit was a compliance vehicle–meaning they only made 1100 or so, for sale mostly in California.
And they’re leases as well. The Fit is actually a pretty cool real-world testbed. You lease the car, and at the end of the lease Honda takes it back for dissection and study. But…it’s an peppy EV with a fast charging battery for just $199/month.
Also included in the deal is no-cost installation of solar panels at home for Fit EV lessees, through Honda’s SolarCity partnership, allowing drivers to partially charge their electric Fits from the sun’s energy.Click here for reuse options!
