The Honda Civic Hybrid comes in one trim option with a suggested starting price of $24,200. Upgrades such as leather seats, satellite-linked navigation and a continuously variable transmission are available for a higher price tag.

The Civic Hybrid has a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It comes standard with a 144-volt lithium-ion battery and a permanent magnet electric motor.

According to the EPA, you can expect to pay around $1,300 over the course of the year for gas, and you'll travel about 523 miles on a tank.

This vehicle was pushed off of the EPA's top 10 list of energy-efficient cars when the Tesla S was introduced, but Bankrate is including it because two other cars on the list are not yet in production.
