Honda Fit EV Electric-Car Leasing Expands To Northeast

Honda has confirmed the five East Coast locations in which its 2013 Honda Fit EV will be leased, joining the West Coast markets of California and Oregon.
The electric Fit will be available at selected locations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, and New Jersey later this month. The car has been on sale on the West Coast since July 2012.

For $389 per month over three years, based on an MSRP of $36,625, the Fit EV is available for lease only.

Honda’s electric Fit is one of the most efficient electric vehicles on sale, EPA-rated at 118 miles per gallon equivalent, or 29 kilowatt-hours per 100 miles. That rises to 132 MPGe in the city, and drops to 105 MPGe highway.

EPA driving range is 82 miles, competitive with other vehicles in the class.

Power comes from a 20 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, feeding a 92 kilowatt (123 horsepower), 189 lb-ft electric motor. Performance is peppy, and the Fit retains the gasoline car’s agile handling. Charging from a 240-volt supply can replenish the battery in as little as three hours.
