  1. In the last decade, Honda has been seemingly slipping, making questionable cars with questionable fuel economy compared to the golden era of Honda . They finally produce a car to make me fall in love with the company again but only release it in select cities and a limited number. It's just .. why....

      Each car company only has a certain amount of tax credits to use, and with the Accord Plug-in Hybrid coming, I can assure you they are more worried about bringing the cost down for purchase on that car versus the electric version of the Fit, so they are saving their tax credits for the Accord, but getting a limited number of Fit Electrics to market to test out the system. People cannot purchase the Fit at the end of the lease, so Honda will be able to bring them back and tear them apart and test everything to see how they fared with wear and tear, make adjustments, then get a larger number to market. They will obviously be able to have more profit built into the Accord Electric, and sell more of them to offset the cost of R&D and tooling for both vehicles. Once they have been out for a few years, I will assume you will have no location restriction and the Fit will come in under $30k with no tax credits and the Accord will probably fall in the mid-$30s with no tax credit.
