That fills in some of the blanks for me... I had heard there was a car like this being developed before the Clarity was even released and every time I ask for more info I get told no in a way that confirmed its existence. Making another FIT EV makes perfect sense from a marketing sense, heck at this point it makes more sense than an IC Fit.

186 range is fine in reality but I find it odd though as I had always heard a number higher... in the mid to upper 2's.

Hmmm then what is the US car?

I know the Battery packs are China sourced but there is a global EV coming based on the Fit frame... this isn't it?

Why?

Why does Honda need a BEV?

The iMMD platform is very good. A Fit iMMD would easily get 65++ mpg. With a 6 gallon tank you'd be looking at almost 400 miles per tank.

Only thing I heard and was posted on the last stock holder report is a new FCEV in 2020.My guess that will be the production version of the Sports EV Concept they showed at the Last Tokyo Auto Show.
Model to debut the 2020 Honda/GM FC.The FC will be built in Mi and I expect the new FCEV to be built at the NSX plant in Ohio.

Because you will lose sales otherwise. People want BEV's, to not offer them would be a bad business move.

With Honda's affordable battery packs they will absolutely kill it if this thing could come in under $20k... they wouldn't be able to make enough of them frankly.

Did you miss the whole news cycle about China's push into EVs?
