10 Greenest Cars of 2013

8. 2013 Honda (HMC - Get Report) Fit EV

MSRP: $389 a month (lease)

Miles per gallon: 132 city, 105 highway, 118 combined.

Electric charge range: 83 miles

This is the second whack at an electric vehicle for Honda, whose EV Plus was beloved on the West Coast and inspired the documentary Who Killed the Electric Car? The great news this time around is that Honda's Fit subcompact hatchback gets the EV treatment and gives drivers 83 miles per charge and room for five passengers. That's better than every EV save the Tesla.

The bad news is that, as with the EV Plus, only a handful of Americans can get it and, even then, they can only lease it. Honda's going with a pilot program that makes the vehicle available for lease only in select cities, likely those in the coastal U.S. with access to charging equipment beyond peoples' homes. Still, the Fit's standard keyless entry, cruise control, modular seating, under-seat storage, 57.3 cubic feet of cargo room and 10 cupholders should be as appealing as they've always been, even if drivers can't keep the electric version just yet.
