Honda Fit EV Makes World Debut at LA Auto Show

The new Honda ‘Fit’ (it’s not that fit) has been unveiled the Los Angeles Auto Show. Honda announced plans to begin leasing the 123 city-mile per charge (76 mile range combined adjusted city/highway) battery electric commuter vehicle in the U.S in summer 2012.

The Fit EV is based on the popular Fit (named Jazz in Europe) and is a part of the company’s diverse portfolio of alternative fuel vehicles that includes petrol-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fuel cell-electric and natural gas-powered models.
