Mitsubishi i-MiEV
Mitsubishi i-MiEV
  • Starting price: $29,125
  • Gas mileage: 112 mpge

Egg-shaped and almost geeky in appearance, the four-passenger Mitsubishi i-MiEV is an all-electric vehicle with 63 horsepower, according to Consumer Reports. And, it can make a top speed of 81 mph. But most owners of this EV won't ever need to push it to top speed. This is a car that is meant to tool around city streets.

The standard features include energy-efficient electric air conditioning, speed-sensitive electric power steering and a driver seat heater. Move to the SE version for $31,975 and you'll also get auto off/on headlight control, halogen fog lights and 360-watt audio system with six speakers and many options not available on the ES version.

All models have top-notch safety features including six air bags, a tire pressure monitoring system, high voltage cutoff, antilock brakes and a vehicle alerting system during low speeds that lets pedestrians know your very silent vehicle is approaching.
