Honda Fit EV gets 118 MPGe Rating

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
