In Brief

This is a bit of a strange one.  Not that this car is strange but just that Honda will only build 1100 per year and only sell in certain states in the US.  This really is a bit of a shame as the car has a lot going for it and every review we’ve read has been very positive.  Who knows what the corporate thinking is behind this policy.  It’s reported that the Fit EV is being used to test the market.  With 300% growth in EVs in 2013 and more than 14 new models being made available in 2014 we are flabberghasted (what a word) at the corporate mentality and rationale.  C’mon Honda.
