Honda has just announced that the 2013 Honda Fit EV has been rated by the EPA at 118 MPGe, giving it the highest fuel-efficiency rating ever given by the EPA. This also means that the Honda Fit EV has a higher MPGe rating than other electric vehicles like the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Ford Focus Electric and Nissan Leaf. The Fit EV also has a low consumption rating of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles and an EPA rated annual fuel cost of $500.

The 2013 Fit EV is powered by a 123 horsepower electric motor and takes less than three hours to recharge with a 240-vot outlet. Honda will begin leasing the Fit EV at a three-year $389 a month lease rate in select California and Oregon markets this summer. Honda plans on introducing the Fit EV to East Coast markets in 2013.

“Just as important as the industry-leading fuel-efficiency and fast recharging time, as a , the 2013 Fit EV will be an absolute kick to drive,” said Steve Center, vice president of the American Honda Environmental Business Development Office.
