March 15th, 2014 by

2014 Honda Fit EVIf you’re a driver looking to fight rising gas prices in the West Michigan area, you aren’t alone.

You might even be looking at hybrid cars or a vehicle like the Civic Natural Gas that switches out a traditional powertrain for one that runs on CNG. But there’s another option too. The 2014 Honda Fit EV.

What is it about this incredible hatchback that makes drivers love it so much? Let’s take a look.

Honda’s “Greenest Automaker” Award is Well-Earned

The Honda Fit EV is efficient, clearly, but it’s even efficient when compared to other EVs, which probably doesn’t surprise readers who know that Honda was recently awarded “Greenest Automaker” by the Union of Concerned Scientists for the fifth consecutive time.*

The Fit EV uses its battery efficiently, maximizing its output and using less to do more. In fact, although its battery is similar in size to many other electric vehicles, the way it is used by the vehicle lets the Fit EV earn a 132 city mpge rating and an 82-mile combined driving-range rating (adjusted) from the EPA.**

This is not just an incredibly efficient car, it’s a zero emissions car. Not a drop of gasoline is used to get you from A to B when you drive a Fit EV. Some drivers are even installing solar panels on their house for a completely renewable rechargeable car!
