After putting down a deposit in July 2013, I finally got the call on St Patrick's Day, and picked up my 2014 Honda Fit EV (#275) yesterday. Awesome car. The kids love it. Well worth the wait. I don't need it for commuting (just local driving here and there) so I'm not worried about the cold NJ winter, which is just about over anyway.

I almost asked for my deposit back in December but figured I'd just wait it out a little longer. I started at #3, #1 received his FEV a couple of months ago, and #2 dropped out before mine arrived at Route 23 Honda in Pompton Plains. I've heard every salesman there has a list of buyers but the dealer honored the wait list. Two months ago I was told that I was next, and sure enough they called me when the next one arrived.

Congrats... I wonder who will get the last FIT EV made? That would be cool if he/she was on the board. We should give them a prize

Thanks. I feel lucky. I've only seen one FEV in NJ before I picked up mine. They are rare around here.

You may have seen me; I commute to Bergen Community College, where there are two chargers.

Congratulations!

I'll keep an eye out for you. Maybe it was you I saw a few months ago.

Now that you mention BCC: how do those chargers work? Looks like they are Chargepoint chargers. Am I right to think that you set up an account, and then can go use them if you need them? How much does it cost to use them, more or less?

So far we're just charging at home each day. The L2 charging hardware should arrive soon and then we'll be in great shape.

Thanks, and hope to see you on the road.

Yes, the BCC chargers are ChargePoint. Set up an account with a balance and they will send you the swipe cards (you can also activate the chargers from a smart phone). The BCC chargers are free :D that may not last forever, but it's very nice while we have it!

I've seen one other Fit, with dealer plates, there, as well as a few Leafs and Volts occasionally, but generally the chargers aren't heavily used.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into it. I'm not sure if I'll ever need to charge outside our home, but it's nice to have an option that's not too far away.

I picked up #353 yesterday at Madison Honda (Madison, NJ)! Got the call on Monday, it arrived on Tuesday. I was on their waiting list for more than 8 months. I didn't believe I was going to get one but it is now in my possession. 8-)
