5 Hottest Cars You Can't Have

Honda Fit EV

At least a Lamborghini waiting list gives you a shot at getting the car. No such luck for those pining for an all-electric version of this modular, comfy Honda hatchback.

When Honda announced its Fit EV program last year, it noted that only 1,100 would be made over the 2013 and 2014 model years and that they would be leased to customers for a three-year period. Then they announced the monthly lease price: $389. That didn't woo anyone, so they dropped the price to $259 a month and dropped mileage restrictions completely.

With the vehicles being leased in just eight states -- California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Rhode Island -- that led to deep waiting lists that Honda dealers could only whittle down at a rate of 40 to 50 vehicles per month. Basically, any Honda EV that comes into the U.S. through the end of the production period this fall is already accounted for. Considering that the whole purpose of this exercise is to decide if an electric Fit will go into full production against the Chevy Spark and Ford Focus Electric, only Honda will know if the rest of us will ever get a shot at driving one of these efficient little hatchbacks with the myriad cupholders, multiple seating arrangements and myriad tech toys.
