Default Honda delivers first Fit EV in California

From AB

Honda Delivers First Fit EV to California Customer
The EPA-rated 118 MPGe Fit EV is now available for lease in select
California and Oregon markets

07/20/2012 - WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., delivered the first all-electric 2013
Honda Fit EV to a couple in Southern California, the company announced
today. The 2013 Honda Fit EV is the latest in Honda's diverse and
expansive portfolio of alternative-fuel vehicles, earning a combined
adjusted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe1, and an unprecedented
low consumption rating of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles.

Ventura County, Calif., residents, Matt and Becky Walton, took
delivery of their Honda Fit EV at the Woodland Hills Honda dealership
located north of Los Angeles. The couple was the very first registrant
to sign up to lease the Fit EV at and plan to use
their vehicle as a daily commuter car. Matt and Becky Walton have a
long history of owning Honda vehicles, beginning with a Honda N600
sedan and a Honda Z600 coupe in the 1970s and now a Honda Odyssey
which will be used as a secondary car.

"It's truly an honor to take delivery of the first Honda Fit EV
and participate in the advancement of all-electric vehicles in the
real world," said Mr. Walton. "The Honda Fit EV is not only
a sustainable and energy efficient transportation option with the
highest fuel-efficiency rating of any EV, but it has the added bonus
of being fun-to-drive and can fully recharge from empty in less than
three hours."

Addressing a critical step in advancing electric vehicles in the real
world, American Honda initially will certify Honda dealers in select
California and Oregon markets as Fit EV dealers to provide an
excellent customer experience for Fit EV customers' sales and service

The Fit EV will be available for lease-only in key markets starting in
California and Oregon, after which availability will expand to East
Coast markets in early 2013. The Fit EV's lease price of $389 per
month2 over a three-year term computes to a Manufacturer's Suggested
Retail Price (MSRP) of $36,625.

Customers interested in leasing or learning more about the Fit EV are
encouraged to sign up at
