Honda names Leviton as EV charging partner

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has announced that Leviton Manufacturing Company has been selected as its preferred Electric Vehicle equipment provider for customer and dealer EV charging.
Honda will debut two battery-electric vehicles beginning with the 2013 Honda Fit EV this summer, and the Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan next winter.
The 2013 Honda Fit EV battery-electric car, based on the popular Fit, targets an estimated 123 city-mile range per charge (76 mile range combined adjusted city/highway) and can fully recharge its battery in as little as three hours when connected to a 240-volt circuit. The Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan uses an all-new, two-motor hybrid system which continuously moves through three different modes — all-electric, with up to a 15 mile per charge range.
