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 nearly 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?
Plug-in Hybrid Coupe
(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.
