That's weird. The Honda site states the Fit EV is no longer available.

The Honda Fit EV had default coasting on the Eco mode, so that could explain the much lower consumption. They also did a good job on the aero, as well.

And they limited themselves to ~1,100 units over three years - and they leased them with NO option to buy.

Compliance car for greenwashing, in other words. They have some of the best cells in that car, too.
Sincerely, Neil

The figures are also a combination of measured distance and the remaining Distance to Empty figure reported by the car.
Depending on the accuracy and in which direction the inaccuracy was there would be quite a bit of room for errors.
Even on gas cars the DTE figure is just a vague estimate. I have driven my car 50km after it reported 0km to empty and yet my wifes car which is the the same type but a couple of years newer model will run out within a couple of km of reporting 0km to empty.
I imagine these electric cars would similarly have differing DTE accuracies.
