Highly efficient, but most drivers will need more than a decade to see the savings

The On the Fit EV has been given a 118 MPGe fuel efficiency rating by the EPA. That makes it the most efficient vehicle in the United States. The downside is the EV costs much more than a traditional gas powered version of the same car. That means it would take about 11 years for a buyer of the Fit EV to get their money back in fuel savings.

Freep reports that would cost $3.30 electricity for the Fit EV to travel 100 miles. A gasoline powered Fit would need 3.2 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles working out to about $11.52. Considering the EV version costs over $12,000 more than the gas version, most drivers will never make up the difference in price paid for an EV.
