In the US, Honda has cut the lease price for the Fit EV in the US to $259 a month beginning 1 June, down from $389 a month. The new three-year lease includes no down payment, unlimited mileage, routine maintenance, collision coverage and 240 volt EV home charging station equipment (not including installation) from Leviton.
The new reduced lease price and unlimited mileage term also will be applied to existing Fit EV customer leases going forward starting in June 2013.

In addition to the new lease price, the Fit EV online application process is further streamlined to allow for quicker approval and delivery of the vehicle to the customer. Further, the network of qualified Fit EV Honda dealers in California, Oregon, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Connecticut will expand from 36 to more than 200 by the end of June.
The 2013 Honda Fit EV has a combined adjusted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, an EPA-rated driving range of 82 miles, and a low energy-consumption rating of 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles.
Fit EV customers also can take advantage of Honda’s partnership with SolarCity to install solar power with no upfront cost.
