2012 Honda Fit EV Concept Car

Electric Motor Means Better Gas Mileage

The Fit EV Concept is propelled by a high-density motor derived from the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle, and features a 3-mode drive system adapted from the CR-Z sport hybrid.  Battery recharging can be accomplished in less than 12 hours when using a conventional 120-volt outlet and less than six hours when employing a 240-volt outlet.

The average commuter in the United States will spend anywhere between 20 and 100 minutes in their vehicle commuting to work or driving around running errands.  The Fit EV is designed with the commuter in mind.  While the 2011 Honda Fit gets an amazing 28 city/35 highway mpg, the new Honda Fit EV will blow that out of the water.  The Honda Fit EV will exceed the needs of most commuters in the country by achieving an estimated 100 miles driving range per charge using the US EPA LA4 city cycle (70 miles when applying EPA’s adjustment factor).  With a fuel cell this powerful, you’ll never have to worry about gas prices again!
