Due to the popularity of hybrids, many manufacturers are considering adding hybrid variants to their current product line, and one of these recent additions is the Honda Fit Hybrid. Though not on the road yet, the Honda Fit Hybrid is slated to be released in the fall of 2010. Already a small, yet roomy, eco-conscious car, the addition of a hybrid variant to the Fit line should be warmly welcomed by the driving public.
Though very few details about the upcoming Honda Fit Hybrid have been released one can assume that a vehicle slightly smaller and lighter than the Honda Insight Hybrid should get even better mileage, and at 40mpg highway and 43mgp city, the Insight is already one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the market. The potential for better mileage in a less expensive package makes it very likely for the Honda Fit Hybrid to be an instant success once it hits the market.
Additionally, the Fit is already a popular vehicle in its segment. Some of its competitors include the Hyundai Accent, the Kia Rio and the Toyota Yaris. Though all very similar in fuel economy, the non-Hybrid Fit only loses out in city mileage to the Toyota Yaris. That being the case, the Fit has the most powerful engine of the bunch, and is the most sporty to drive. No doubt the Fit will continue to be a serious competitor in this segment, and its popularity will likely rise once the hybrid version arrives.
