    Default Honda Fit Hybrid Owners and Fans Club

    Honda Fit Hybrid Owners and Fans Club
    Honda fit is probably the cheapest hybrid car you can buy, Although it's a mild hybrid, it gives decent mileage and offer good value for money in this segment of the market. It is available as a Hatch-back or station wagon body style. The later is called Honda Fit Shuttle Hybrid and it was only released in Japanese Domestic Market.

    Please use this thread as a platform to share your pictures, mileage, questions, comments or other suggestions regarding Honda Fit Hybrid or other cars with Honda IMA (Integrated Motor Assist).

    Some Details from Wikipedia: Sales of the Fit Hybrid began in Japan in October 2010. The hybrid version starts at ?1.59 million (around US$20,000), the lowest price for a gasoline-hybrid electric vehicle sold in Japan. The Fit Hybrid features a 1.3-litre engine and electric motor, with an estimated fuel economy of 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres (86 mpg-imp; 71 mpg-US) measured in accordance with Japanese 10?15 cycle. The car uses a parallel hybrid system that works in tandem with the gasoline engine. The parallel hybrid system is simple and lightweight while enhances driving performance and fuel economy.

    1. Yes, that's true, to achieve mileage figures close to Honda's claims, you need to drive very very carefully and adapt basic hypermiling techniques, I am also running 35 psi. In fact Honda Fit is not a true Hybrid car, they call it a "Mild Hybrid". It's basically a car with an Atkinson cycle engine and a small electric motor to compensate for the inherent less low-end torque of these engines. In the hands of a skilled hypermiler, I guess the overall difference of mileage would be less than 20% compared to a similar petrol only car.

    But the real advantage for us is that you get rebate on import duty because technically it's a hybrid, and if you compare it with other imported cars with similar features, the price might be justified. For example a freshly imported vitz 1.0 with cruise control and bluetooth+navigation would easily go beyond 1.4M mark these days. and then there's a huge gape between vitz and Prius (which are the most popular jdm cars in pakistan) even if you don't consider the hybrid factor

    Does this unit have any hybrid specific features like showing the battery power or so on like in the Prius?

    Not exactly like Prius, but it shows some economy scores when you switch on the car. And if it's paired with cellphone, it shows the call info etc.

    The battery status and usage and other driving starts are shown on another multi information display near the dials.

    Then definitely go for an aftermarket unit. The only reason people hesitate with Prius units is because its quite cool to see the battery usage and all...

    the original one is quite nicely integrated with the car's dashboard, the thirdparty one probably won't fit in that well, but i'll check the local market. plus there are multimedia and telephone controls on the steering wheel, but I guess most popular models have support for Honda system.

    The other alternative would be to get a stock US or UK system.

    Prius c also called Aqua is more expensive, you will get it in more than 21 lac whereas fit you can get in 15-16.Fit is much smaller in size than Prius c, it is your choice as per your budget. However I will recommend that if you go for fit, get latest model of fit hybrid(released in 2013) which is more fuel efficient than current model.

    I was never able to get anything close to that on my fit no matter how carefully I drive and whether it's urban or highway driving.
