Gallery: EXCLUSIVE PICS: Honda Unveils the 2013 Fit EV at the 2011 LA A...

It has a 20kWh lithium ion battery, 3 driving modes, and a smart phone app that keeps a watchful eye on battery levels

Using the same motor as Honda’s FCX Clarity fuel-cell EV, the Fit EV has a 123 mile range in the city that blows its competition, including the Nissan Leaf, right out of the water. Hooked up to a 240-volt circuit, a fully sapped battery can be charged in just 3 hours, according to Honda. Highway miles slump to 95, but this hatchback is definitely the ideal urbanite runaround.

Honda plans to roll out its Fit EV lease in California and Oregon next summer, while 6 major east coast markets will have to wait until the following year. The MSRP on this ride is $36,625 and Honda expects the lease payment to run at roughly $399 per month. Stay tuned for other news from this year’s LA Auto Show as Inhabitat continues to inspect the electric scene!
