California and Oregon residents, like Matt and Becky Walton, get first dibs on the 2013 Honda Fit EV. The couple, who live north of Los Angeles, were the first to sign up to lease the Fit EV on Honda’s website, and they have now received the first Honda Fit EV.
The Fit EV gets an EPA mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, and a rating of 29 kilowatt-hours per 100 miles. The lease price is $389 per month, which over three years equals the MSRP of $36,625.
East coast folks will get their chance at leasing a Fit EV in early 2013. No word when Honda will make the dreams of sweet Midwesterners come true.
