Tell Honda not to bring any more Fit EVs. Leave them in Japan. GM will cover the market with the better and less cost Chevy Spark EV!
As for car lightening, you cannot do these three things at the same time:
1. Lighten the car
2. Keep all Federal safety requirements (crash resistance, seat belts, and air bags)
3. Lower cost
Unless you remove all the safety devices, lighten the car by removing all the unused seats, sell the removed devices and seats, then tie giant air filled plastic bags all around the outside of the car!
