Google, Stanford, Torrance 1st to Add Honda Fit EV 2013 to Their Fleets

It doesn’t get nearly as much attention as the Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt, but Honda’s 2013 Fit EV battery-electric vehicle is a green one (by today’s standards). Now, Google, Stanford University, and the city of Torrance (CA) have received the car to add to their fleets as part of the Honda Electric Vehicle Demonstration Program.

These three entities are “conducting general testing as well as providing specific feedback related to the future introduction of electric vehicles,” Honda writes. They are the first to try out the new Honda car.

“Honda debuted the 2013 Fit EV at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and announced plans to begin leasing the 123 city-mile per charge (76 mile range combined adjusted city/highway)1 battery-electric commuter vehicle to customers in select California and Oregon markets during the summer of 2012 with a rollout to east coast markets planned for Spring 2013. Equipped with a 20-kWh lithium-ion battery and 92- kW coaxial electric motor, the Fit EV battery can be fully recharged in as little as 3 hours when connected to a 240-volt circuit.”

Reportedly, the Fit EV’s retail price is expected to be $36,625 and it’s expected to lease for around $399/month.

Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
