Excellent. It's nice to see lots of manufacturer's jumping on the bandwagon.

The end of the ICE is nigh.

Awesome! Now my 2008 Fit can have some company!

I'm just hoping Honda can undercut the Nissan Leaf in prices then this EV Fit should sell like hotcakes.

Thumbs down Concerned about the Environment?

You can only lease it? $399 a month? Only 1100 to be made over 3 years? I've loved Hondas for as long as I can remember but this is a joke.

$36k for an electric Fit with an "average range" of 72 miles? No thank you, I'll get a diesel or a CNG vehicle instead for $10k less.

I understand why they're not planning to make more than 1100. I'm all in favor of electric cars, but not at this price. Standard gas Fit makes much more sense.

Yeah, that really doesn't make good financial sense unless you drive a hell of a lot. I guess you got the wow factor as its such a thrill to roll along not using any gas.

I love seeing more of the EVs hit the streets, hopefully the battery prices can drop to make these cars more affordable.
