Top 10 Least Expensive Hybrids and Electrics for 2015


Not so long ago, hybrids and electric cars came saddled with hefty price premiums relative to their gas-only counterparts, and were rare enough to command double-takes when driven on city streets. These days, these vehicles are far more common, and their popularity has a lot to do with the fact that their prices have become more reasonable. There are many picks in this segment that hold appeal for shoppers seeking transportation that's both low-cost and relatively inexpensive to power.

Remember that while hybrids equal gas-only models in versatility, electric cars have more limited range. If you're a city driver who makes short trips, an electric car could make sense, but for those with long commutes or frequent road trips, a hybrid or gas-only model is a more practical choice.

With budget-conscious shoppers in mind, the models shown below are the 10 least expensive hybrids and electric cars for 2015. Our list is dominated by affordable hybrids. For shoppers seeking a choice that's very easy on the eyes, there's the good-looking Ford Fusion Hybrid. Off-roaders will want to check out the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid, since it's built to venture off the paved path. And the popular Toyota Prius offers lots of room for passengers and cargo. Our list's sole electric entry is the Smart Fortwo Electric.

We've included each model's MSRP, but the figures listed reflect base-model pricing. A broader range of features will require a bigger investment.
