The 2013 Honda Fit EV has just received the highest fuel-efficiency rating ever given by the EPA – 118 MPGe. According to EPA, the Fit EV will cost you $500 per year as it has a low consumption rating of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles. This means that the car will help its drivers 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles. The bad news is that the Fit EV has a total range of just 82 miles. Still, there are some good news as the 2013 Honda Fit EV is the most efficient electric car and overtakes all its rivals: Ford Focus Electric (105 MPGe, 76-mile range), Nissan Leaf (99 MPGe, 73-mile range), and Mitsubishi i-MiEV (112 MPGe, 62-mile range). The Fit EV can be recharged in less than 3 hours from a low charge indicator illumination point when connected to a 240-volt circuit. The 2013 Fit EV carries a 92 kilowatt (123 horsepower) coaxial electric motor that generates 188 ft-lb of torque.
