As the gas prices in the U.S. continue to fluctuate and conserving our resources has moved from trendy to essential, a new breed of automobiles have made their grand entrance and built a solid following. The electric car has arrived, bidding a gradual farewell to the gas tank and exhaust pipes, and here at Silko Honda in Raynham, your Easton area Honda dealership, we proudly brag about the 2013 Honda Fit EV on a daily basis. Renown for its intelligent design, innovative technologies, and impressive efficiency, the new Fit EV offers a fun-to-drive yet eco-friendly ride that cruises right on past the pumps. Although there are other electric choices such as the 2012 Nissan Leaf, here at Silko Honda we have four top reasons why we are all about the 2013 Honda Fit EV over any other model.
The Top Four Reasons the Fit EV Wins
- Comfort and Space: For ultimate passenger comfort, the rear seats recline in the Fit EV, an option not available in the Leaf. The Fit EV also offers 49.2 cu ft. of cargo space with the rear seats folded over the Leaf’s mere 24 cu ft.
- Power and Performance: Although both the 2012 Leaf and 2013 Fit EV are loaded with an electric engine and cruise in FWD, the Fit EV will offer you 123 hp over the Leaf’s 107hp, all while grabbing you a stellar EPA estimated fuel mileage of 132 city/105 hwy* over the Leaf’s 106 city/92 hwy.
- Safety Features: Known for their focused attention to safety, Honda has wrapped the Fit EV with airbags that have vehicle speed sensors, seat sensors, and smart technologies that allow appropriate force when deployed, whereas the Leaf does not have smart technologies and therefore will always deploy full-force. The Fit EV also offers Daytime Running Lights to create visibility in all conditions, a feature not available on the Leaf.
- Standard Features: Start up the 2013 Fit EV while still in the comfort of your home, then climb in to find a telescoping steering wheel for your comfort as well as rear heating vents and a built-in filtration system. Hop out and a quick push of the door locks the handle. These innovative features are not available on the 2012 Leaf.
