2013 Honda Fit EV
The 2013 Honda Fit EV, has received a combined adjusted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, and a consumption rating of 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles.
Full EPA MPGe ratings for the Fit EV are 132/105/118 (city/highway/combined), according to the automaker.
The Fit EV’s 20-kWh lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery provides the capacity to earn an EPA combined city/highway estimated driving range rating of 82 miles. The Fit EV’s powertrain design, weight-conscious engineering and aerodynamics help make the most of its smaller battery. Additionally, the Fit EV battery can be recharged in less than three hours from a low-charge indicator illumination point when connected to a 240V circuit.
The Fit EV’s 92 kilowatt (123 horsepower) coaxial electric motor generates 188 ft.-lb. of torque, and is teamed to a chassis with a fully-independent suspension and a driver-selectable three-mode electric drive system adapted from the CR-Z Sport Hybrid.
