Check out the growing list of cars powered by electricity! A few years ago, you could count the number of available plug-in cars on one hand, with a couple fingers left over. Today, there are more than 20 models offered from more than a dozen different brands—in a range of sizes, styles, price points and powertrains to suit a wide range of consumers. (Okay, other models have been discontinued, failing to emerge from concepts.) But EVs are here to stay. The cars on this list all offer the sweet speedy-but-silent driving experience only available from battery-to-motor power. Which one of the following plug-in models has your name on it?

Audi A3 E-Tron

Plug-in Hybrid Luxury

16 miles (electric + gasoline)

After years of developing all kinds of plug-in prototype, Audi put one on sale in January 2016. The A3 Sportback platform has a compelling mix of attributes—elegant lines, high-quality materials and practicality. Combine that with a capable 1.4-liter turbocharged gas engine and an electric powertrain providing about 16 miles of electric driving. The result is a small snazzy and robust plug-in hybrid.

BMW 330e

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

14 miles (electric + gasoline)

If you like the styling and road manners of a BMW 3-Series, but want to push the envelope on efficiency, then the 330e is the answer. Commutes of less than 14 miles can happen purely on electricity, with an official 72 MPGe rating. Punch the accelerator for combined power from a 2-liter turbocharged engine and 87-hp electric motor. That results in nearly as much torque as the V6 340i at a lower purchase price after federal incentives.

BMW i3

Electric Vehicle Sedan

81 miles (pure electric)

The stylish if slightly odd-looking BMW i3 is the lightest EV on the market. That makes it very efficient while providing a fast and fun 170-horsepower ride. The i3's battery pack delivers more than 80 miles of range. The electric Bimmer is also available with a small gas engine that essentially doubles that distance.

BMW i8

Plug-in Hybrid Coupe

25 miles (electric + gasoline)

The i8 is BMW's expensive sleek futuristic plug-in hybrid supercar. The car is powered in a one-two punch by a powerful 96-kilowatt (129-horsepower) electric motor driving the front wheels—and an efficient 230-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine motivating the rear wheels. The car has a delightful split personality: switching on command between virtuous EV silence, and a delightful Porsche-like engine note when driven as a sports machine.

BMW X5 xdrive40e

Plug-in Hybrid SUV

13 miles (electric + gasoline)

The X5 is everything you’d expect from a BMW. High quality materials abound inside the vehicle’s refined cabin. A turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and 111-horsepower electric motor provide a solid 308 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. With the ability to plug in, X5 xDrive 40e grants 13 miles in electric-only mode, and 24 mpg strictly from the gas engine.

Chevrolet Spark EV

Electric Vehicle Coupe

82 miles (pure electric)

The Spark EV is the all-electric version of Chevy's five-door urban mini-car. The powerful motor, quick acceleration, and short wheelbase, make it an exhilarating drive. At an estimated 119 MPGe, it's one of the most efficient electric car on sale today.

Chevy Volt

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

53 miles (electric + gasoline)

The 2016 Chevy Volt ushers in the second generation of the world’s most popular plug-in hybrid. While the first-generation model was designed to attract early adopters, the 2016 edition expands the Volt’s market reach to a broader segment of car buyers. It has more all-electric range; it's faster; and its design is more pleasant.

Fiat 500e

Electric Vehicle Coupe

84 miles (pure electric)

The Fiat 500e is every bit as cute as the gas-powered Fiat 500. It uses a 24 kilowatt-hour liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack, providing an official EPA range of 84 miles. The Fiat 500e is widely considered a "compliance" car produced only in small numbers to meet California regulations.

Ford C-Max Energi

Plug-in Hybrid Wagon/Van

19 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Ford C-Max Energi is a compelling alternative to the other leading plug-in hybrids—the Chevy Volt and Plug-in Prius. It offers 19 miles of all-electric driving, 620 miles of total range, and an attractive price. The C-Max is considered a small "activity" vehicle, which is popular in Europe but not widely available in the United States. The small wagon-like platform is versatile and functional.

Ford Focus Electric

Electric Vehicle Sedan

76 miles (pure electric)

The five-door hatchback provides about 80 miles of range. It offers many features that make it an enticing EV package, including an attractive design and zippy drive. The Focus Electric employs a 107-kilowatt (143 horsepower) motor, compared to the LEAF’s 110 horsepower motor.

Ford Fusion Energi

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

19 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Ford Fusion Energi offers a robust plug-in electric system in an ultra-popular roomy full-size sedan platform. The model offers the equivalent of about 100 miles per gallon, without compromising style or passenger space. After its battery is depleted, the Fusion Energi still delivers 38 miles per gallon.

Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

27 miles (electric + gasoline)

Hyundai takes on the plug-in competition with a powerful motor, six-speed automatic transmission, and a battery pack providing about 27 miles of all-electric range. It's packaged in the attractive and comfortable Sonata mid-size sedan.

Kia Soul EV

Electric Vehicle Sedan

93 miles (pure electric)

Hyundai-Kia arrived late to the EV party. But it appears that Kia made a careful study of the competition, and loaded its Soul EV with smart features for electric car drivers. For starters, it offers 93 miles of real-world range.

Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive

Electric Vehicle Sedan

85 miles (pure electric)

This small Mercedes electric car directly competes with the BMW i3. Its powertrain is provided by Tesla Motors, but engineers turned it into a comfortable and relaxed commuter car. If driven with care, the well-appointed B-Class could offer around 100 miles of range from a battery pack capable of holding 31.5 kilowatt-hours of juice.

Mercedes C350 Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

20 miles (electric + gasoline)

The second plug-in hybrid from Mercedes is brought to the small luxury C-Class. It’s both sporty, with total output of 275 horsepower, and capable of about 20 miles of ultra-efficient electric driving. The C350 is stylish, well appointed, and loaded with advanced safety features. The ability to plug in will push the C-Class car to new levels of efficiency.

Mercedes S550 Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

20 miles (electric + gasoline)

It's hard to find flaws in a Mercedes S-Class. In the past, power and comfort came at some price in terms of fuel efficiency. With the S550 Plug-in Hybrid, you get all the benefits of the Mercedes flagship sedan, but now with 20 miles of all-electric range and (depending on how you drive and charge) as much as 40 miles per gallon.

Mercedes-Benz GLE550e

Plug-in Hybrid SUV

12 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Mercedes-Benz GLE550e 4Matic brings the plug-in hybrid system of the S550 large sedan—which has been available in the United States since 2015—to the brand’s largest crossover SUV model: the GLE. With an all-electric range of about 12 miles, the GLE isn’t going to revolutionize the market. Yet, it provides another option for shoppers looking for a large luxury plug-in hybrid crossover.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV

Electric Vehicle Sedan

62 miles (pure electric)

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV was once considered a front-runner in the race for a mass-market EV. The cute car claims a max speed of 80 mph and a range of about 75 miles. But with the i-MiEV's small size and modest electric drivetrain, and limited production numbers, it has become more of an also-ran.

Nissan LEAF

Electric Vehicle Sedan

107 miles (pure electric)

The Nissan LEAF is by far the most popular EV in the world. It is a well-equipped, all-electric hatchback that seats five adults and can travel up to 107 miles on a single charge. The LEAF is available to test-drive and purchase at Nissan dealerships throughout the United States.

Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid SUV

14 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Cayenne S E-Hybrid is the first luxury plug-in SUV to hit the market. It combines the stylish lines and sporty performance of a Porsche in the form of its popular crossover. Now add a 10.8 kilowatt-hour battery, which means about 14 miles of all-electric driving, and total average EPA efficiency of 47 MPGe.

Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

16 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Porsche Panamera S E-hybrid is luxury sports sedan first, and a plug-in hybrid second. The four-seater is powered by a 3.0-liter, V6 supercharged gasoline engine, paired with a 70-kilowatt electric motor. It provides about 22 miles of all-electric range and a top speed of 167 miles per hour.

Smart Electric Drive

Electric Vehicle Coupe

68 miles (pure electric)

The latest version of tiny two-seat city car is a vast improvement over Smart’s previous all-electric versions. Measuring just over 106 inches from tip to tail, and a shade under 62 inches tall and wide, the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive is small enough to occupy the smallest of spaces. And it's the only EV available with a convertible top.

Tesla Model S

Electric Vehicle Sedan

315 miles (pure electric)

The Tesla Model S is a bright vision of a practical and desirable all-electric sedan. Tesla set a big goal for itself: to deliver not just a great EV, but one of the world's best luxury sedans. Mission accomplished.

Tesla Model X

Electric Vehicle SUV

289 miles (pure electric)

The Model X is Tesla’s follow-up vehicle to the award-winning Model S sedan. The X shares about 60 percent of the content from the sedan—converting the sleek Maserati-looking five-passenger model into a stylish crossover utility vehicle.

Volkswagen E-Golf

Electric Vehicle Sedan

83 miles (pure electric)

The Volkswagen E-Golf is the company’s first all-electric car. It maintains the spirited driving experience of internal combustion versions of the Golf—one of the most popular small cars in the world. The VW E-Golf is arguably the best handling car among the emerging class of small affordable EVs.

Volvo XC90 T8

Plug-in Hybrid SUV

17 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Volvo XC90 T8 is a luxury high-performance plug-in hybrid SUV. It offers comfort, safety, and a level of efficiency previously thought impossible in a all-wheel-drive people-mover. It's expected to offer about 17 miles of all-electric range, and the equivalent total fuel economy of 59 miles per gallon.

Chevrolet Bolt

Electric Vehicle Sedan

238 miles (pure electric)

With the Bolt, General Motors will be the first to offer an affordable long-range electric car, rated to provide 238 miles on a single charge. It's due before the end of 2016.

Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid (Prime)

Plug-in Hybrid Sedan

22 miles (electric + gasoline)

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime replaces the Prius Plug-in Hybrid, which Toyota ceased producing in June 2015. The Prius Prime is expected to achieve an EV-only range of 22 miles thanks to its 8.8-kWh lithium ion battery pack—which doubles the capacity of the former 4.4-kWh pack.

Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrid Wagon/Van

30 miles (electric + gasoline)

Chrysler unveiled the all-new 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid at the 2016 Detroit auto show. It is Chrysler’s first plug-in car—and the industry’s first plug-in hybrid minivan. With the rise of crossover SUVs, and the stodgy image of bloated family-haulers, the minivan market has shrunk in the past decade or so. Perhaps Chrysler’s plug-in hybrid, offering 30 miles of all-electric range, will lure families back into the segment.

Tesla Model 3

Electric Vehicle Sedan

200 miles (pure electric)

Tesla would have to defy all expectations to achieve success on the Model 3, while avoiding all the potential pitfalls—not only for the 200-mile $35,000 Model 3, but a massive new battery factory. Yet, based on the unveiling of the car in March 2016, the company appears ready to make another ground-breaking electric car.

Cadillac ELR

Plug-in Hybrid Coupe

37 miles (electric + gasoline)

The ELR boasts an electric-only range of 37 miles and a total combined range of about 340 miles. The ELR shares most of its technical elements with the current Chevy Volt, including its 1.4-liter gasoline engine and 17-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The ELR features Cadillac's signature angular look, but that alone is not worth the steep price.

Porsche 918 Spyder

Plug-in Hybrid Coupe

12 miles (electric + gasoline)

The Porsche 918 Spyder is a plug-in hybrid supercar, produced in a limited quantity of 918. Porsche makes plug-in hybrid versions of the Panamera and Cayenne. But ultra-expensive 887-horsepower 918 Spyder is in the echelon of the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari. The 918 pays homage to iconic sports cars like Porsche’s Carrera GT and 959.

McLaren P1

Plug-in Hybrid Coupe

19 miles (electric + gasoline)

The McLaren P1 is a limited-run British plug-in hybrid sportscar. It’s considered one of the most exciting road cars ever built. The $1.15 million P1's 3.8-liter 727-hp V-8 is paired with a 177-hp electric motor to unleash a mind-boggling 903-horsepower, revealing that plug-in hybrid technology can be applied to the highest end of supercar performance.
