Honda Reduces the Cost to Take Home a Fit EV

Honda today announced a new price package for its all-electric Fit EV including the new lease price of $259 a month beginning June 1.

Reduced from $389 a month, the new three-year lease term stretches customer’s electric dollar even further with no down payment, unlimited mileage, routine maintenance, collision coverage and a 240 volt EV home charging station equipment (not including installation), from Leviton.

The new reduced lease price and unlimited mileage term also will be applied to existing Fit EV customer leases going forward starting in June 2013.

With the reduced payment, unlimited mileage, maintenance and collision coverage, this new lease program makes the Fit EV one of the most affordable electric vehicles available in the U.S., says the company.

“The Fit EV already is a benchmark electric vehicle with a leading-range rating, fun-to-drive dynamics and excellent packaging,” said Steve Center, vice president of Environmental Business Development at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

In addition to the new lease price, the Fit EV online application process is further streamlined to allow for quicker approval and delivery of the vehicle to the customer.

Further, according to the company, the network of qualified Fit EV Honda dealers in California, Oregon, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island and Connecticut will expand from 36 to more than 200 by the end of June.
