LA 2010: Honda Fit EV Concept

Concept

A main feature now at the Los Angele Auto Show is the hybrid vehicle. Hybrids are fast becoming more of a mainstream product for consumers, but now automakers are turning their attention on the next 'green' frontier, all-electric cars. In LA, Honda has lifted the covers off the all-new Fit EV Concept electric subcompact. The Fit Concept is supposed to be the closest thing in direction and styling for the upcoming production Fit EV all-electric vehicle.

The concept is based on the current Fit (aka Jazz in Europe), and the production model will be powered by a lithium-ion battery and coaxial electric motor. The battery is reported able to be recharged in less than 12 hours when using a conventional 120-volt outlet. With a top speed of 90 mph, the Fit is set to achieve an estimated 100-mile driving range per charge. Honda says that the Fit EV will be able to make use of a 3-mode electric drive system in order to get the most out of each charge. It's targed for release in the U.S. in 2012.
