What is the Honda Fit EV?
Have you heard about the car that runs completely on electricity?
Meet the Honda Fit EV. One of the EV series in Honda, it is a model that runs on electricity. Yes, pure electricity. The model uses a 92kW electric motor with 188 lb-ft of torque and a lithium-ion battery. When the battery is depleted, you do not need to head to the nearest gas station, you can just plug it in at home! When using a 240 volt circuit, a depleted battery can be fully recharged in as little as three hours!
One of the features of the Fit EV is the three mode driving system which allows you to choose which energy plan you want to use. There is a sports mode, which allows for more power usage. An econ mode is available as well, which is used for efficiency, and finally a normal mode, which is a balance of the two. Once the buttons on right are pressed, lights will shine near the electricity gauge.
Many people believe that this is the perfect car for previous hybrid owners. Why? Well, the Fit EV does not use any gas, but only electricity. So, the Fit EV does not need a tailpipe to release emissions anymore. Therefore, it is extremely environmentally-friendly.
The Fit EV has even more things implemented in it such as, a built-in GPS and automatic climate control!
All in all, the Fit EV is a car made for the environment that can be used for things that any other car can do. Look for it in the summer of 2012.
