At first glance, the Interior of the Fit EV looks conventional. But look closer and you'll notice subtle differences unique to an electric vehicle. The fuel gauge is actually the state-of-charge meter. Next to it, you'll find the accessory power meter, which shows how much electricity is being used by features like the automatic climate control and audio system. The range meter sits front and center, and lets you know, in real time, an estimate of just how far you can go on the current state of charge.
The navigation system in the Fit EV includes features designed specifically for EV life. Concentric range circles provide a visual indication of your current estimated range. If you need to charge up, simply push the TALK button on the steering wheel and say, "Find the nearest 240-volt charging station." And as an added convenience, the system also includes a rearview camera display when the Fit EV is in Reverse.
The floor-mounted gear selector may look like one you’d find on your typical automatic transmission-equipped vehicle, but the Fit EV doesn’t have gears. You’ll find positions for Park, Reverse, Drive, and, for those who want to increase regenerative braking, a “B” position. When a driver releases the accelerator while in “B,” an increased engine braking effect is applied, helpful when driving down a long hill or to increase battery recharging.
Bio Fabric Seats
The environmental thinking behind the Fit EV even extends to the origin of the plant-based seat fabric. Honda engineers decided to use a sugarcane-based material since it would not increase demand for a more nutritionally essential crop like corn.
