It might seem like a silly thing to say, but the best way to save money on your fuel bills is to just not buy gasoline.

That may have sounded like a joke a few years ago, but electric vehicles like the Honda Fit EV are changing that, giving you the option to plug in and charge your car overnight to get incredible efficiency and a great electric range.

Although the Fit EV is not available in every market yet, we thought we’d give you a profile of what it has to offer so you can get ready for it.

What Would You Say to 132 MPGe?

Even though the Fit EV doesn’t run on gasoline, the experts at the Environmental Protection Agency have come up with an equivalent rating system—referred to as mpge—to show you how efficient an electric vehicle is compared to a gas-powered alternative.

And the 2014 Fit EV gets an EPA-estimated 132 mpge in the city.* Not only that, but on a full charge, the Fit has a range of as much as 82 miles combined across city and highway driving.

Don’t worry, though, there’s more to the Fit EV than just its fuel economy. Honda has given drivers some of the best in standard features on their electric vehicle, including

  • Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation System
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
  • Automatic Climate Control
  • EV-Centric Gauges
  • Bio Fabric Seating
  • Three Mode Drive System

The standard 2013 Honda Fit is available now and features many of the great amenities you can find on the Fit EV as well as a fuel-efficient gasoline engine.

The Honda Fit is an incredible vehicle, no matter which way you slice it. If you want to cut gasoline from your budget, it’s the best way to do so, although the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid can go all-electric for short drives too.
