Honda is extending the reach of its efficient and fun-to-drive all-electric Fit EV through new lease programs for both existing and prospective Fit EV customers.
For current, eligible Fit EV customers, Honda is offering a two-year lease extension that includes a lower $199 monthly payment (previously $259) and extends the unlimited mileage, routine maintenance and collision coverage that were included in the original lease.
The reduced lease price and matching two-year terms will also be available to new customers interested in driving a used Honda Fit EV. Honda shared the news to a group of Fit EV drivers at an event hosted at the Honda Smart Home US in Davis, CA on Saturday, March 21.
“Most Fit EV drivers tell us they love their vehicles, and many have requested lease extensions and this extended lease program is intended to meet their needs,” said Steve Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re very confident in how the vehicles are performing, and look forward to offering new and existing customers a chance to experience everything the Fit EV has to offer.”
The Honda Fit EV is among the most efficient 5-passenger electric vehicles on the market with a combined adjusted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, an EPA-rated driving range of 82 miles, and a super-efficient energy-consumption rating of 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles. When connected to a 240-volt circuit, the Fit EV battery can be recharged in less than three hours.
Lessees will be contacted by Honda prior to lease end for additional details about lease extensions. Fit EV customers also can take advantage of Honda’s partnership with SolarCity to install solar power with no upfront cost, allowing them to recharge their vehicle with clean, affordable power from the sun.
