Back in the past, the Honda Fit EV (dubbed Honda Jazz in our country) has gone through a short-lived history since its launch in 2012 when Honda decided to phase out this model just a few years later. Now, 2018 comes as a year for EVs and car manufacturers constantly transfer to electrification, it seems that the Fit EV could make its return.
According to the latest car news from the Nikkei Asian Review - a Japanese newspaper, Honda will set up a partnership with Contemporary Amperex Technology to produce related technologies and batteries to be applied for a new electric model.

The forthcoming EV will make its debut in China and other markets in 2020. Exact names of the car in other markets will be announced later.
The aforementioned EV is said to be developed from the ongoing Honda Fit. This would make the unnamed EV of Honda more affordable with a predicted cost to be about 2 million yen (equivalent to around P960,400). Honda also expected to sell 100,000 units of the all-new EV every year, perhaps making it become the best-selling EV of the brand.
