The Fit EV Concept made its world debut Nov. 17 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The production Fit EV will be introduced to customers in the U.S. and Japan in 2012.

When the City receives its Fit EV and plug-in hybrid, it will be evaluating the technologies with a focus on charging infrastructure development, promotion of sustainable community initiatives, and to building public awareness about electric vehicles.

The Fit EV will have a top speed of 90 mph and can be recharged in less than 12 hours when using a conventional 120v outlet, and less than six hours when using a 240v outlet, according to Honda.

Achieving an estimated 100-mile driving range per charge, driving range can be maximized by use of an innovative 3-mode electric drive system, adapted from the 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid. The system allows the driver to select between Econ, Normal, and Sport to maximize efficiency or improve acceleration.
