Honda Fit CT says the Fit Ev will travel 120 miles in city driving, and its lithium-ion batteries can be recharged in less than three hours. Smartphone users can monitor the car’s charge from an app. Honda will lease the fit initially for $399 a month based on an MSRP of $36,625.

To understand how important the CR-V is to Honda, consider that it was the best-selling SUV four years running and might have made it five if not for the disruption wrought by the tsunami. According to Honda Dealerships In DFW, this latest generation CR-V is heavily restyled, but will still offer front- and all-wheel drive powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine developing 185 horsepower and 163 lb.-ft. of torque. Front-drive fuel economy comes in at 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, an increase of 2 and 3 mpg city/highway.Also new is EcoAssist, which provides the driver with feedback on how the vehicle is being driven.
Bluetooth phone connectivity and a full-color information display are standard across the range, and a Pandora Internet radio interface that’s compatible with Apple iPhones. The CR-V goes on sale Dec. 15 at Car Dealerships In Bremerton WA and dealers near you.
