Honda’s first electric vehicle will arrive in July.

The 2013 Honda Fit EV will be available in California and Oregon starting July 20, but you only can lease the vehicle. Honda hasn’t determined when it will offer the Fit EV for purchase.

The Fit EV’s 3-year lease will cost $389 per month.

Leasing availability will expand to six cities on the East Coast in early 2013, Honda says.

Environmental Protection Agency estimates the Fit EV to have 118 MPGe. MPGe is the miles-per-gallon equivalency for electric vehicles.
