2011 Chevy Volt | 93 mpg equivalent
For the first 35 miles of the day, the Chevy Volt is an electric car. After that, a gas engine kicks in to power the car for up to 379 miles. Some argue the all-electric Nissan Leaf is greener. Volt fans point to their car's superior range. We can recommend both, depending on the needs and desires of the buyer. As a bonus, the Volt looks like a tasteful vision of the future - inside and out - and is one of the most fun electrically driven cars we've driven so far.
