2014 Honda Fit EV vs 2014 Ford Focus Electric
If you’re been looking to make the switch over to a completely electric vehicles, you can see that in the battle of the 2014 Honda Fit EV vs 2014 Ford Focus Electric, one option is significantly better.
Last year, the 2014 Honda Fit was a hybrid, but as the manufacturer makes a move towards a greener approach, it’s no surprise that the Fit is being offered in a fully-electric option. What makes the Honda Fit one of the greatest EVs out there is the insane amount of storage space. Typically EVs are small so that they can maximize fuel economy. However, the Fit offers 35 cubic feet of total cargo volume more than the Focus, and is still able to achieve a fuel economy rating of 132 MPGe1—that’s 22 MPGe more than the Focus. Storage in the hatchback is also made easy with the folding 60/40 split rear seatback, a feature that isn’t even offered in the Focus Electric.
Charge Fast and Go Further in the 2014 Fit EV
Another major upside to the Fit EV is the fact that it can travel further on a single charge. The difference of six miles from the Focus Electric may not seem like much, but think about how far that distance actually is. If you have to make a last second errand at the end of the day, that six miles can get you there and ensure that your car won’t die out on the way. Charging is also much more convenient in the Fit EV. It can be fully charged a full hour quicker than the Ford Focus. While that may not seem like much of a deal if you plug your car in overnight at home, but if you’re on the road and need a charge, you don’t have to wait around nearly as long.
