Inside Line from Edmunds.com reports that a hybrid version of the Honda Fit may go on sale in the U.S. as soon as next year. This hybrid is supposed to get 80 mpg and costs under $12,000.
Honda already has Accord and Civic hybrids and the groundbreaking Insight, the first gas-electric hybrid car on the U.S. market. If the Fit hybrid does go on sale at under $12,000, that price would sharply undercut the hybrid offerings of Honda’s rival Toyota. The standard gasoline-engined Fit is set to go on sale in the United States later this year.
