Honda to Introduce Two New Models at the Los Angeles Auto Show

By Blake Z. Rong | October 24, 2011
Honda aficionados, take note: the company will introduce two important vehicles at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, including the redesigned 2012 CR-V and an electric version of the Fit. The CR-V was shown in concept form a few weeks ago at the Orange County Auto Show, and this production-ready variant won’t differ much from its orangey progenitor. It promises to be bigger, lighter, more fuel-efficient and technology-laden than its current model, but we won’t know yet until Honda releases details in November. From what we can see now, however, it’s already better-looking than today’s CR-V. The 2013 Fit EV will be, unsurprisingly, an all-electric version of the eminently popular Fit, but this time with zero emissions and aerodynamic retweaks to go with it. The Fit EV was last shown in November of last year, but this time Honda has ironed out all the kinks for mass production, namely, a lithium-ion battery pack and electric motor featuring an 100-mile range, and a full charging time of just 12 hours with a 120-volt system. The Fit EV uses components from the FCX Clarity and CR-Z models, and is expected to retain most of its five-door functionality.
