Honda Fit EV

Honda is making an electric version of its sporty subcompact, the Fit. The Honda Fit EV debuted at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and will be available for lease in select California and Oregon markets in the summer of 2012. Drivers can expect 123 miles of emissions-free driving in the city with a three-hour recharge using a 240-volt circuit. The MSRP of the all-electric Fit is $36,625 with an estimated lease payment of $399 per month.
