We already knew GM was releasing the Spark EV for Maryland sales- the first East Coast market. Now, Honda announced lease renewals for Fit EVs; they don’t want to kill the electric car (yet). Current leaseholders, and customers for used Fit EVs, can sign two-year extensions or leases respectively, for $199 a month. There is no down payment or mileage limit, and collision coverage is included.
It’s not all mooncakes and saki, however. The terms indicate this extension is the end; there will be no option to re-extend or purchase in 2017. And this is all assuming you can find a Honda Fit EV. The company made little effort to promote or sell them any more than they had to. Still, we’ve got members who have one and they recommend them. As long as you like blue, apparently.
