What Are My Options for Electric Cars?

The Obama administration wants 1 million plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) on U.S. roads by 2015. And automakers are obliging with a wide choice of models, ranging from moderately priced small cars to large luxury sports sedans.

While even the least expensive EVs can be pricey compared with similar conventional cars, cost should not be the only consideration. There’s value in not worrying about the price of gasoline and in reducing your tax bill through credits, for instance. Here’s more to ponder if you’re thinking about buying an electric car.

What are the different kinds of plug-in EVs?

Battery-electric vehicles, or BEVs, run strictly on battery power. Examples are the Nissan Leaf ($35,200), the Mitsubishi i-MiEV ($29,975), the Ford Focus Electric ($39,200), which will arrive later this year, and the Coda Sedan ($37,250), which so far is available only in California.
