Honda plans to begin selling an all-electric plug-in version of its Fit compact car in the United States and Japan in 2012.

The Fit EV will have a driving range of about 100 miles and a top speed of 90 miles per hour. It will have three driving modes -- Sport, Normal and Econ -- similar to those used in Honda's CR-Z hybrid.

Honda said this car "hints strongly at the direction and styling" of a future Fit electric car. Apparently, it will look a lot like a regular gas-powered Honda Fit, assuming the giant lettering on the side won't be a standard part of the package.

Honda also unveiled technology for a future plug-in hybrid car. Cars using the plug-in hybrid engineering would have a 10 to 15 mile all-electric driving range.
