Honda Fit EV says goodbye to collision insurance

Honda Fit EV Waves Goodbye To Collision Insurance

Honda wants to convince you it is serious about alternative energy and its Fit EV might just have enough to satisfy city dwellers and the light suburban population, taking a chunk out of insurance.

If you live in California or Oregon and can get your hands leasing a Honda Fit EV electric car, the company has something to entice you with. The electric car, EV cannot only take you on a 100 miles or more ride but will also wave your collision deduction.

It was hard to see if Honda was serious about a pure electric car. It was working on its astronomically expensive hydrogen Clarity car a few years ago, estimated at $5 million dollars. But Honda wasn’t saying anything much about pure electric cars. After suffering a few recalls and bleeding away some of its workforce, Honda got its wake up call. It gets it. It wants its cars to stand out again, instead of trying to appeal to a wide a market, losing all appeal but practicality. Many asked, why can’t we have a successor to the S2000 and why not one with an electric drivetrain? Time will tell.
