6. 2014 Chevrolet Volt
Another American company wanting to get in on the eco-action. The Volt’s plug-in feature means you’ll be able to score one of the coveted charging station parking spots at Whole Foods.
Pros: The Volt offers refined handling and performance and better electric-only driving range than other plug-in hybrids.
Cons: In need of a redesign for its rear, bigger families will regret the limited cargo space and cramped rear seats.
