When the production version of the electric Honda Fit hits the streets in late 2012, it will feature a lithium-ion battery and coaxial electric motor derived from the unit used in the Honda FCX Clarity. Honda claims the electric Fit will top out at 90 miles per hour and return an estimated 100 miles of range using the EPA's LA4 city cycle. We'd like to be proven wrong, but right now we're wondering if that 100-mile range estimate is a bit optimistic. Perhaps we'll learn more about this – and things like pricing (unlikely) or production volume (possible) for the Fit EV when the electric hatch hits the stage in LA.
