Top Rated: Electric Car

Electric cars get most or all of the energy used for propulsion from batteries and motors. Some rely on battery-stored energy alone; others combine electric drive systems with internal-combustion engines that recharge those batteries. Today's electric cars span the gamut from relatively inexpensive hatchbacks to ultra-exotic sports cars, some offering a total driving range of nearly 300 miles. The Car Connection's electric car rankings include both battery-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles with battery-only drive modes.
