At the 2010 LA Auto Show, Honda unveiled the Fit EV- a five-seater hatchback suitable for daily urban commuting.
The Fit EV Concept is based on the gasoline powered Fit (or Jazz in other markets) model, with the exterior design features taken from the the design language we’ve come to know, except for a few minor revisions here and there.
Honda FIT EV is powered by a high-density coaxial motor derived from Honda’s FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, with a lithium-ion battery pack. Automaker says the combination should be good for 70 to 100 miles a charge; it will recharge in 12 hours from a 120-volt outlet and less than six hours with a 240.
Similar like Honda CR-Z hybrid, the Fit EV will have three distinct driving modes: econ, normal, and sport.
Econ mode will extend the driving range by 17 percent compared to the normal mode. In sport mode, Honda says the Fit EV mimics the acceleration of a small car with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine.
