Disassembly of the Honda Fit Hybrid was performed on the 7th and 8th of November 2013 at the maintenance shop of the Saitama Institute of Automotive Technology (SIAT) in Ina, Kita Adachi Gun, Saitama Prefecture. The event was organized by the Saitama Industrial Development Corporation, Next Generation Automobile Industry. Later, on the 27th of November 2013, the disassembled parts were displayed for public viewing at the Saitama Industrial Technology Center in Kawaguchi City, Saitama Prefecture. A keynote speech was made on the same day on "development concepts and hybrid system technologies."
