Back when these models were first introduced, many hybrids and electric cars came with steep price premiums, making them impractical choices for the average shopper. Now, just a few years later, prices within these segments are a lot more reasonable. As a result, many of these models make sense for the shopper in search of a vehicle that's both affordable and relatively inexpensive to power.

Keep in mind, though, that while hybrids are practical choices in every situation, electric cars are tethered by range limitations. These models are useful for city driving, but if you take frequent road trips, a hybrid or gas-only car is a more versatile choice.

With a budget in mind, the models shown below are the 10 least expensive hybrids and electric cars for 2014. The list includes old-timers like the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, as well as newer arrivals like the Subaru XV Crosstrek hybrid and the Ford C-Max hybrid.

We've included each model's MSRP, but the figures listed reflect base-model pricing. For more bells and whistles, you'll have to step up your investment.

For even greater savings, take a look at incentives and rebates, which are offered with many of these models. Get the best deal on your vehicle by researching its True Market Value before negotiating a purchase. You might also find these models offered through Edmunds.com's Price Promise® program.
