Of course this article caught our attention as we read that the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid is expected to get 85.6 mpg (36.4 km/L). Wow. Then we were disappointed when we read that the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid will probably only be made available in Japan.
Insert teenage whiny voice: “But whyeeeeee?!”
According to the article, “The Honda Fit is sold in the U.S. with a 1.5-liter four cylinder and gets 35 mpg with the automatic transmission. And it’s also sold as a 100 percent electric. But Honda is apparently not offering the hybrid model in the U.S. Honda may be working on a new compact sedan and crossover based on the Fit, for the U.S. and it could be sold in North-America early in 2014 with a similar hybrid system.”
That’s not really an answer. Personally, I’d want a model that gets 85.6 mpg. Right?!
“The all-new 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid will launch in Japan in early September. Hopefully the Japanese automaker will either bring the hybrid Fit to the U.S., or develop a new compact sedan and crossover based on the Sport Hybrid i-DCD hybrid system. Stay tuned.”
What do you think? Should Honda bring the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid to the U.S. so we can all have the opportunity to drive a car that gets the “fuel sipping” mileage of 85.6 mpg?? Yes!
