Honda’s dive into the electric car realm is coming in the form of the 2013 Honda Fit EV. While it is based on the Honda Fit that is currently out there, it has its own unique qualities – in addition to the fact that it runs entirely on electricity. Obviously the Fit EV has a lot going for it, as it was recently named the most efficient vehicle on the market.
As far as design, the Fit EV looks very similar to the Honda Fit that we know and love, but it has gained some aerodynamic advantages. The new fascia diverts air more effectively, allowing the Fit EV to have less drag. It also brings more air into the engine, which keeps the electric motor cool.
The actual driving experience will be all new to Honda drivers. Under the hood is a 20kWh lithium-ion battery and 92 kilowatt electric motor. The result is 123 horsepower that is good enough for a top speed of 90 mph. A three-mode driving system allows drivers to select between Sport,Normaland Econ modes. Sport mode provides the most power to your ride, Econ mode saves the most energy and extends battery life andNormalmixes in the two for a comfortable driving experience. Obviously, range will depend on which mode you choose, with the optimal range coming from Econ.
By providing top-of-the-line efficiency, the 2013 Honda Fit EV is changing the electric car game.RSS Feed
