At 118 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent), the MY2013 Honda Fit EV is tops in fuel economy among models sold in the U.S. It has a U.S. EPA consumption rating of just 29 kW·h/100 mi and an estimated range of 82 mi—more than that of the Ford Focus Electric (105 MPGe, 76 mi), Nissan Leaf (99 MPGe, 73 mi), and Mitsubishi i (112 MPGe, 62 mi). EPA-estimated annual "fuel" cost is $500. The 118 MPGe figure breaks down into 132 city and 105 highway. The 20-kW·h lithium-ion battery can be recharged in less than 3 h at 240 V. The car is designed to the SAE J1772 connector standard for battery recharging.(Watch a video of Fit EV charging here.)
