Coda Automotive is new to the electric-car market. It just released the Coda in March. It's a four-door sedan with a suggested retail price of $37,250, but it gets a federal tax credit of $7,500. If you're a California resident, you'll also get state tax credits.

It has a 100-kilowatt electric motor, which is a bit bigger than other electrics on the list of energy-efficient cars. The power comes from a 333-volt, 31-kilowatt-hour, lithium-iron phosphate battery.

With the optional 240-volt home charging station, you'll get a full battery meter in six hours, according to Coda. The 120-volt standard charger will take 36 to 40 hours.

You can expect to go about 88 miles on a charge with a "fuel" cost of approximately $850 annually to charge up this car, according to EPA estimates.
