Honda has unveiled a new electric vehicle at the LA Auto Show.

The Fit (Jazz) EV Concept gives motorists a hint as to what the Fit EV all-electric model will look like when it reaches showrooms in 2012.

Designed to serve commuters and families alike, the model features a five-seat layout and will be powered by a lithium-ion battery and coaxial electric motor.

It will have an estimated 100 miles driving range and three driving modes: economy, normal and sport.

Honda notes that drivers will be able to charge the Fit EV via a standard 120V outlet in 12 hours, or less than six hours via a 240V outlet.

President and chief executive Takanobu Ito said: "An electric vehicle must offer great utility and be fun to drive. Fit EV's urban commuting capability will be a perfect addition to the full-function mobility of the plug-in hybrid and FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle."

The company was recently named the greenest automaker in the US for the fifth year running by the Union of Concerned Scientists.ADNFCR-3205-ID-800243278-ADNFCR
