2013 Honda Fit EV Overview
2013 Honda Fit EV Exterior
Like its traditionally powered sibling, the 2013 Honda Fit EV brings a bit of character to the normally reserved Honda lineup. With its squared hatchback rear end and short, rounded front, it shares a lot of characteristics with the regular Fit, though it has a specially designed grille and badge that makes sure you know it’s all-electric.
2013 Honda Fit EV Performance
This all-electric powertrain uses a 92 kW electric motor with a 20-kWh lithium-ion battery pack to power the Fit EV an estimated 82 miles on a full charge. The system puts out a total 123 horsepower and 189 lb-ft of torque. A depleted Fit EV can charge in just three hours with the standard 240-volt charger, though it can take up to 15 hours with a 120-volt circuit.
2013 Honda Fit EV Efficiency
According to the EPA, the 2013 Fit EV’s MPGe figures are an estimated 118 MPGe combined.
2013 Honda Fit EV Interior
Just like the exterior, the Fit EV’s interior is also similar to that of the standard Fit’s with easy-to-read gauges and simple controls. The gauge clusters offer a bit more information though, showcasing the battery pack’s state of charge and remaining range. Throughout the interior, Honda keeps the theme of “going green” with upholstery material derived from sugar cane, rather than synthetic materials.
2013 Honda Fit EV Safety
Along with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and active head restraints, the 2013 Honda Fit EV also comes standard with a rearview camera.
