2013 Honda Fit EV Rated by the EPA at 118 MPGe; Highest
Fuel-Efficiency Rating Ever

The 2013 Honda Fit EV tops all other EV offerings in efficiency
ratings, providing the most mileage for your electric dollar

TORRANCE, Calif., June 6, 2012 The 2013 Honda Fit EV, with a
combined adjusted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, received the highest
fuel-efficiency rating ever given by the EPA. Further, with an
unprecedented low consumption rating of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh)
per 100 miles and low EPA rated annual fuel cost of $500, the
fun-to-drive 2013 Honda Fit EV can help consumers get more miles for
each charging dollar.

With such an efficient drivetrain, the Fit EV's 20-kWh lithium-ion
(Li-ion) battery provides the capacity to earn an EPA combined
city/highway estimated driving range rating of 82-miles, allowing the
Fit EV to surpass the EPA efficiency and range ratings of the Ford
Focus Electric (105 MPGe, 76-mile range), Nissan Leaf (99 MPGe,
73-mile range), and Mitsubishi i-MiEV (112 MPGe, 62-mile range). The
Fit EV's exceptionally efficient design encompassing everything from
savvy powertrain design, weight-conscious engineering and effective
aerodynamics makes the most of the Fit EV's smaller battery.
Additionally, the Fit EV battery can be recharged in less than 3 hours
from a low charge indicator illumination point when connected to a
240-volt circuit.

"Just as important as the industry-leading fuel-efficiency and
fast recharging time, as a Honda, the 2013 Fit EV will be an absolute
kick to drive," said Steve Center, vice president of the American
Honda Environmental Business Development Office.

The Fit EV's 92 kilowatt (123 horsepower) coaxial electric motor
generates 188 ft-lb of torque, and is teamed to a chassis with a
fully-independent suspension and a driver-selectable 3-mode electric
drive system adapted from the CR-Z Sport Hybrid.

Honda debuted the 2013 Fit EV at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and
announced plans to begin leasing the battery-electric commuter vehicle
to customers in select California and Oregon markets during the summer
of 2012, followed by an East Coast rollout in 2013.

Honda Environmental Leadership

The Fit EV is a part of Honda's portfolio approach, which includes the
development of battery- electric, hydrogen, natural gas, and
gasoline-electric powered vehicles, to improve fuel-efficiency and
reduce C02 emissions. Honda has led the Union of Concerned Scientists
(UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since
2000, and a Honda vehicle has topped the list of America's greenest
vehicles, from the America Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy
(ACEEE), for eleven consecutive years.

In 2006, Honda became the first automaker to announce voluntary CO2
emissions reduction targets for its global fleet of automobile,
powersports and power equipment products and its global network of
manufacturing plants. Today, the company is striving for even greater
reductions in CO2 emissions that contribute to global climate change,
while also working to minimize waste, water use and the total
environmental footprint of its operations worldwide.

*132/105/118 city/highway/combined miles per gallon of
gasoline-equivalent (MPGe) rating; 82 mile combined (city/highway)
driving range rating (adjusted). Ratings determined by US EPA. Your
MPGe and range will vary depending on driving conditions, how you
drive and maintain your vehicle, battery age/condition, and other
factors. For additional information about EPA ratings, visit
