  18. 18. Nissan Leaf I'll start with the big boy (or girl), the top-selling electric car on the planet. The Nissan Leaf, after the US federal EV tax credit, costs just $21,300. In California, it would cost $18,800, while in Georgia it could go as low as $16,300 (after Georgia's $5,000 EV tax credit). The Leaf has a fuel economy rating of 114 MPGe, putting it near the very top of the list for fuel efficiency -- #4, to be precise. (Actually, every car in the top 10 is now an electrified car.) The Leaf seats 5 and has a range of 84 miles on a full charge. Plus, it doesn't pollute your local air or the climate, and it can be charged with sunshine (i.e., solar power). And if that's not enough for you, it cuts our need to "secure" oil resources in foreign countries, it has very awesome acceleration, and you can "fill it up" while sitting on your couch and reading TreeHugger rather than going to a smelly gas station more times than you can count. Chevy Volt While the Nissan Leaf is the top-selling EV globally, the Chevy Volt is the top-selling EV in the US. (Though, there were actually more Leafs sold in December and January than Volts, but that's a story for another day.) The Chevy Volt, unlike the Leaf, isn't a 100% electric vehicle. It has a gas engine that can extend its range if the electric motor runs out of juice. Having a gas engine, the Volt's fuel economy is much lower than the Leaf's, but it's also well above the nation's record average fuel economy of 24.7 MPG (which we just hit). The Volt's combined fuel economy rating is 60 MPGe, but it's 98 MPGe on the battery, which many drivers use over 90% of the time. The Volt has 38 miles of range on the battery, and 380 miles of range in total. A step down from the Leaf in the space metric, the Volt just seats 4. 10 Electrified Cars under $30,000
  19. 19. smart electric drive The smart electric drive (yep, the manufacturer doesn't capitalize the name) is the cheapest of these 11 vehicles... sort of. The smart electric drive costs $12,490 after the federal tax credit, but that doesn't include the battery. The battery must be leased for $80/month. After 5 years of ownership, that brings the cost up to $17,290. After 10 years of ownership, it gets up to $22,090. That's more than cost of the Leaf. The smart electric drive has less range than the Leaf – 68 miles; seats fewer people than the Leaf – 2; has a lower fuel economy rating than the Leaf – 107 MPGe (#6 on the fuel economy top 10 list); and doesn't drive as nicely as the Leaf (I've driven them both and I can tell you that's a fact). All in all, I'm not sure why anyone would purchase the smart electric drive rather than the Leaf. However, I guess there are a few potential reasons: 1) The smart electric drive is the only EV on the market with a convertible option. 2) Perhaps some people just prefer the style – it is cute. 3) And then there's the ease of parking thing: Wheego Whip & Wheego LiFe The Wheego Whip and the Wheego LiFe are not on many radars, and not a lot is known about the vehicles, but they are on the market. The Wheego Whip comes in at $18,995 after the federal tax credit, while the Wheego LiFe comes in at $25,495. The difference between the two is essentially range. The Whip has a range of 40 miles on a full charge, while the LiFe has a range of 100 miles. Both cars seat just two people at a time. The Wheego Whip and Wheego LiFe are not rated by the EPA, so we don't really know how they fare in fuel economy. However, based on their specs, I'm sure they do quite well.
  20. 20. Mitsubishi i The 2014 Mitsubishi i – not yet out but presumably coming soon – just saw its price cut by $6,130 compared to the 2012 Mitsubishi i (aka Mitsubishi i-MiEV). That brings it down to $15,495 after the federal tax credit. If you don't count the artificially cheap smart electric drive, the Mitsubishi i is the cheapest electric car on the US market. It's nothing flashy, but it's a cute car for a low price. It seats four, the 2012 model had a fuel economy rating of 112 MPGe (#5), and the 2012 model had a range of 62 miles on a full charge. I don't anticipate those ratings will change much for the 2014 model. With the big price drop, I expect this car to sell pretty well in 2014. Chevy Spark EV Next up the ladder (in terms of price) would be the Wheego Whip, but since I already covered that one, it's the Chevy Spark EV. The Chevy Spark EV has gotten some great reviews, and Consumer Reports claims that it beats its gasmobile sibling in performance. (Personally, I think all EVs must beat their gasmobile siblings on performance – they're a few times more efficient, their acceleration is much better, they don't pollute the local air or ruin the climate, and they are super quiet and smooth to drive.) The Chevy Spark EV comes in at $19,995 after the federal tax credit, just under the Leaf. Leases are available for as low as $199/month. The Spark EV tops the fuel efficiency list, coming in 1 MPGe above the Honda Fit EV (not on this list) at 119 MPGe. The Spark EV has 82 miles of range on a full charge and it seats four. Apparently, the acceleration beats that of the Leaf. This could be a real contender in the EV market. Unfortunately, it's still just available in California and Oregon "in limited quantities," and there's no indication that's going to change. Despite seemingly not trying to actually sell the car, GM made one of the best EV commercials I've ever seen for it. The commercial, unlike many, really shows off the tremendous acceleration benefit of EVs, and in a memorable way. This is what will get more of the general populous to go electric:
  21. 21. Fiat 500e The Fiat 500e comes in a bit above the Nissan Leaf (in terms of price). It costs $24,300 after the federal tax credit. The 500e has gotten great reviews. It even won "Electric Car of 2013" in Road & Track. Like the Spark EV, it has been rated by auto journalists as better than its gasmobile sibling, thanks largely to its great acceleration and great efficiency. At 116 MPGe, the Fiat 500e only trails the Chevy Spark EV and Honda Fit EV, according to the EPA. It has 87 miles of range on a full charge and it seats four. Unfortunately, even more so than the Spark EV, the Fiat 500e is being produced in extremely limited quantities. It was sold out for all of 2013 by June 2013, and I think it's only available in California. The head of Fiat apparently hates electric vehicles and is only producing the car because of certain requirements in California. It's either that or not sell vehicles in one of the largest car markets in the world. Interestingly, despite not intending to produce many cars, Fiat created a ton of ads about how hot and sexy the Fiat 500e. They're quite good and funny, imho. Here are a few: Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid The Toyota Prius Plug-in, like the Chevy Volt, isn't a pure electric vehicle. It can use gas to extend its range. Actually, the battery range on the Toyota Prius Plug-in is a pretty lame 11 miles, while the total range is 540 miles. In other words, we can hardly call this an electric vehicle. However, most trips are under 11 miles, and its combined MPGe rating is 58, just 4 MPGe lower than the Chevy Volt. It ties for #10 on the EPA's fuel efficiency ranking, despite not competing with the 100% electrics on this list. The Toyota Prius Plug-in seats five and the model has been selling fairly well. In 2013, it came in at #3 in worldwide electrified vehicle sales, and it came in at #4 in US sales.
  22. 22. Ford Focus Electric Just $210 more than the Toyota Prius Plug-in is the Ford Focus Electric. However, the two cars are very different. The Ford Focus Electric is a fully electric car – like every car on this list except for the Chevy Volt, the Toyota Prius Plug-in, and the next and final car on this list. The Ford Focus Electric gets 105 MPGe, thanks to its tremendously efficient electric motor. It has 76 miles of range on a full charge, and it seats five. In many scenarios, thanks to its super-efficient electric motor, the Ford Focus Electric becomes cheaper than a Ford Focus gasmobile within two to three years. Of course, this depends on many assumptions, such as how much you tend to drive, in which state you live, and the price of gasoline. Of course, beyond price, I imagine you'd also take into consideration the cost of CO2 pollution and other pollution from a gasmobile, the cost of oil security, and the convenience of never having to stop at a gas station. Ford C-Max Energi Another Ford squeezes onto the list right at the end. The Ford C-Max Energi costs $28,943 after the federal tax credit. This plug-in hybrid electric car complements the Ford Focus Electric and Ford Fusion Energi to round out Ford's electrified vehicle offerings. Ford is actually the only US car company to offer three electrified vehicle models. The Ford C-Max Energi has been selling fairly well (#5 in 2013 US electrified vehicle sales) thanks to its relatively low price, its 100 MPGe fuel economy rating on electricity and 43 MPG rating on gas, its range of 620 miles (21 on battery alone), and its five welcoming seats. If you're considering a Ford C-Max Hybrid, I recommend you make a green upgrade and go for the Ford C-Max Energi instead. Again, the upfront cost is more, but there's a good chance you'll actually save money down the road (no pun intended).
