Honda will debut two all-new models, the 2013 Fit EV and the 2012 CR-V at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 16 November. The battery-electric Fit EV concept vehicle debuted at last year’s LA show and the production model appears this year. (Earlier post.)
At the 2010 introduction, Honda said the Fit EV production model would powered by a lithium-ion battery and a high-density coaxial electric motor derived from the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle; the Fit EV will have a top speed of 90 mph (145 km/h).
The Fit EV was targeted to achieve an estimated 100-mile (161 km) driving range per charge using the US LA4 city cycle—70 miles (113 km) when applying EPA’s adjustment factor. Driving range can be maximized by use of a 3-mode electric drive system, adapted from the 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid.
CR-V. As one of the best-selling SUV's in the United States, the fourth-generation 2012 CR-V will showcase new exterior and interior styling, improved fuel economy and added technology features.
