There’s a new leader in the quest to become the most efficient car on the market. The 2013 Honda Fit EV (electric vehicle) was recently named the most efficient car thanks to the 118 mile per gallon equivalent rating from the EPA. While the Fit EV doesn’t use any gas whatsoever, the EPA still gives it a ranking of MPGe. The new Honda Fit EV can travel a distance of 82 miles before needing to be recharged. It’s sure to be one popular electric car in Austin when it arrives.
Looking like a refreshed version of the 2012 Honda Fit the 2013 electric version has officially beaten out some tough competition in the efficiency category. With competitors like the Leaf and Focus Electric, the Fit EV just entered the market and took the title of most efficient vehicle. This is no small feat, as efficiency is a top priority for car buyers.
How did Honda take the most efficient crown? Well, the company credits the car’s lightweight design, aerodynamics and “savvy powertrain” for helping it top the competition. The Honda Fit EV is being rolled out on a limited basis this summer, and will get a full-scale release in early 2013.RSS Feed
