Note that Coda has had problems, the BMW Active E is not coming to production, but the i3, which is more of a compliance vehicle (due in US next spring). Would like to see some more of these types of tests, now that there are more all-electric cars available.

Honda Apologizes…

While the all-electric drive Honda Fit EV did sell out of current inventory in dealerships upon changing their lease deal, and they do have waiting lists, they have NOT pre-sold all that have yet to be delivered to dealerships. While they won’t be increasing the 2013 production number of 1,100 Fit EVs, dealerships in several states, (CA, OR, NY, NJ, MA, MD, RI, CT), will continue to be shipped inventory.
