Honda said today that it will begin offering its pure battery electric Fit EV, EPA-rated at an adjusted combined mile-per-gallon-equivalency rating of 118 MPGe, for $389 per month via three-year lease in California and Oregon effective July 20.

Coming at you for $389 per month in California and Oregon from July 20 — the pure battery elecric 2013 Honda Fit EV.

Fit EV availability is to expand to six East Coast markets in early 2013, Honda says.

The battery car joins a Honda alternative fuel vehicle range that includes the FCX Clarity fuel-cell electric vehicle, multiple gas-electric hybrid models, and America’s only mass-produced natural gas vehicle, the Honda Civic Natural Gas.

“No other automaker on the planet is more deeply committed to produce and deliver more energy-efficient and sustainable transportation solutions than Honda,” Steve Center, American Honda environmental business development VP, said in a release.

“The 2013 Honda Fit EV is the latest example of this commitment,” he said.

The Fit EV is based on Honda’s five-door, five-passenger Fit and Fit Sport, but features a 20-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery and a compact 92-kilowatt (123 horsepower) AC synchronous electric motor generating 189 ft-lb of torque.

EPA-estimated single-charge range is 82 miles.

An onboard charger allows the vehicle to be plugged into any household-type 120-volt or available 240-volt AC power supply, Honda adds. When connected to a 240-volt circuit, the Fit EV battery can be recharged in less than three hours from a low charge indicator illumination point.
