2013 Honda Fit EV Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)
We've tried a lot of the "working man's" electric cars and PHEVs, and this is the first one that provides us the total package.
Start with the "lease", which includes vehicle damage insurance. 3 years is a reasonable amount of time, and the total outlay over 3 years isn't bad. Especially because you only need to provide liability insurance (with moderate limits).
While we've only been driving the car for a few days, the first outing was approx 60 miles, mostly freeway, and we ended that with 33% charge left. [Much of the time in Eco mode, and no AC or heat]. The next trip was about 50 miles, driven more normally, some AC, and ended with about 50% charge remaining.
100 mile range possible?
Driver room. Sport mode acceleration. Overall packaging.
Nav system needs an update, both of software and the maps. An EV really should come with a very complete list of EV charging stations. Fortunately there are many resources on the web. Would like to see the large (Nav, backup camera screen) used for vehicle data. Cargo cover.
