5 additional states

Fans of the Honda Fit EV on the East Coast rejoice, Honda is expanding distribution of its all-electric hatchback. Last summer, it became available in California and Oregon, and it is now coming to 5 more states: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New York, and New Jersey. As previously reported, the Honda Fit EV is rated at 118 MPG-equivalent by the EPA, which translates to just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles, making it the highest-rated plug-in so far.

The Fit EV’s 92 kilowatt (123 horsepower) coaxial electric motor generates 188 ft-lb of torque, and is teamed to a chassis with a fully-independent suspension and a driver-selectable 3-mode electric drive system adapted from the CR-Z Sport Hybrid.

Pricing will be about $389 per month for a three-year lease. MSRP is $36,625, but you can't buy a Fit EV outright so far.
