It does seem pricey. My current ride costs me nothing in payments and maybe an average of $50-100/month in parts. My insurance is about $400/year. This Fit EV claims about 120 MPGe, which is something a little less than double my mpg in this 1998 Civic. Does anyone think much more can be hypermiled out of the Fit EV?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
