Honda is using the Fit for the EV demonstration program.

Honda on Nov. 8 held a ceremony in Guangzhou, China, to commemorate the start of demonstration testing of electric vehicles (EVs). The model to be used is the Fit, equipped with electromotive technologies such as an advanced lithium-ion battery and coaxial motors that Honda has used in development of the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle. The charging time is under 6 h with a 220-V power supply, and range is more than 150 km (93 mi). The tests will be conducted jointly with its Chinese partner, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd., and the city government of Guangzhou to identify the vehicle’s potential technological issues. Also examined will be charging patterns, with the results of those examinations helping in decisions related to establishment of a recharging infrastructure in China.
