The Fit EV is equipped with the same safety features as every other new Honda passenger vehicle available for sale. Six airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) all come standard.
The Fit EV is also equipped with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) connectors in two second-row seating positions that provide a simple and convenient way of attaching child seats.
An Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. Front airbags and front-side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) help protect you and your passengers.
The lithium-ion battery is encased in a steel jacket and is designed to be non-reactive in any crash, even if punctured. For added protection, in the event of a sufficient impact the battery will be automatically shut down. It must then be reset by an EV-certified Honda dealer.
