Honda Accord Hybrid: The Honda Accord Hybrid has an EPA rating of 50 and has a combined city/highways rating of 47 miles per gallon. It also includes blind-spot warning and a rearview camera.

Chevrolet Spark Electric: An all-electric car, the Chevrolet Spark Electric is powered by a 130-horsepower electric motor. Chevrolet says its battery has a range of 80 miles before recharging. It has the equivalent of 119 miles per gallon combined driving.

Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid: This plug-in version of the Sonata Hybrid is expected to have a larger battery pack that will allow for a greater electric-only driving range.
