10. Honda Fit EV

Starting price: $36,625 (theoretical – see below)

The Honda Fit EV has an impressive range (82 miles) and charge time (just three hours at 240 volts), plus a highly flexible and space-efficient cabin. There's just one issue, and that's that you can't buy a Fit EV; they're only available for lease, and only if you live in California, and there are only 1,100 of them. Bottom line, according to Brauer, the Fit EV is "an appealing model hampered by an unconvincing commitment to the electric car movement."
