Honda Fit EV: The All-electric Leaderboard
Here’s how the new Fit EV stacks up against its primary electric rivals:
- Fit EV—The Fit has been rated at 118 MPGe in combined driving by the EPA, and has an EPA-certified driving range of up to 82 miles, with a charging time of about three hours with a 240-volt charging unit.
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV—Able to reach 112 MPGe in combined driving with an EPA-approved range of up to 62 miles, the i-MiEV takes about seven hours to completely charge with a 240-volt charger.
- Ford Focus Electric—The Blue Oval’s EV solution gets 105 MPGe in combined driving with a driving range of up to 76 miles, per the EPA; using a 240-volt charger, the Focus Electric can be “filled up” in about four hours.
- Nissan LEAF—Along with an EPA rating of 99 MPGe in combined travel, the LEAF earns a 73-mile driving range from the agency and can be recharged in approximately seven hours with 240-volt recharging technology.
- Chevy Volt—The Volt can be driven about 35 miles on a single charge in its all-electric driving mode, achieving an EPA rating of 94 MPGe and requiring four hours for a full charge from a 240-volt charging unit. (Remember: The Volt also provides an additional 340+ miles worth of driving with its onboard, gas-powered engine/generator, capable of 37 mpg in combined driving.)
