Coming in as an all new model in the subcompact category, the 2013 Honda Fit EV has great interiors and space-efficient design. With the all-new 2013 Honda Fit EV, users won’t feel almost any difference as they would feel with its gas-powered vehicle. The only difference that makes it different though is that it is electrically powered. The electric motor of the 2013 Honda Fit EV is derived from the Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell prototype. The electric power pumping system creates 123 hp and 189 lb-ft of torque and is fed by a 20 kWh, air-cooled lithium ion battery pack.
Since the battery pack is placed under the car, the 2013 Honda Fit EV’s floor has been raised by about three inches high as compared to other Fit models. However, the raised floor of the Honda Fit EV is well partnered by a cathedral ceiling; hence anyone won’t suspect that there was reduced headroom. Moreover, it’s “Magic Seat” which is available in the conventional 2013 Honda Fit is not available for the EV due to the electrification of the Fit’s engine. To patch it up, the Fit EV’s rear seats can be folded flat.
