American Honda Motor announced that Leviton Manufacturing Company has been selected as Honda’s preferred Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment provider for customer and dealer EV charging.
Honda will be introducing two battery-electric vehicles beginning with the 2013 Honda Fit EV this summer, and the Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan next winter.
The 2013 Honda Fit EV battery-electric commuter car, based on the popular Fit, targets an estimated 123 city-mile range per charge (76 mile range combined adjusted city/highway)(1) and can fully recharge its battery in as little as three hours when connected to a 240-volt circuit.
The Honda Plug-In Hybrid Sedan uses an all-new, two-motor hybrid system which continuously moves through three different modes – all-electric, with up to a 15 mile per charge range; gasoline-electric; and direct-drive – to maximize driving and fuel efficiency, especially during city driving.
“Pairing Leviton’s EV charging solutions with Honda’s advanced Fit EV and Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan electric vehicles will enable a more convenient and seamless ownership experience for our customers,” said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda.
