Honda Fit Promising Doom For Chevy Bolt

By  | 

The all-new Chevrolet Bolt EV is arguably one the best EVs you can buy right now as the car comes with a decent design, strong performance and most important of all, 238 miles of driving range on a fully charged battery.

Keeping in mind that the Bolt is priced from $37,498 before tax rebates, the car can return $158 per EV mile and this is only second to the Tesla Model 3 Long-Range version. At present moment, the Bolt looks like an unbeatable EV but this is not the case for Honda.

The Japanese carmaker was reported saying that they will be going all-out in the EV scene by summoning the Fit EV. The latter is claimed to be in the works and it will arrive with 151 miles to offer from a fully charged battery.

This may place the Fit EV far behind the Bolt in terms of driving range but the upcoming car from Honda will still win it in terms of value. The report quoted that the Fit EV is targeting to arrive next year with an MSRP that starts at $18,000 before tax rebates.

It basically means that the Fit EV can offer $119-per-EV-mile and this is significantly better than the Chevrolet Bolt. When paired with the fact that the Fit EV can be obtained from $11,000 after tax credit, Honda will force the affordable EV segment into a pricing revolution. Will it happen though?

    Collision repair for a Tesla Model S minor fender bender can cost almost as much as the Fit base price
