Halfway through 2013, the list of electric cars available in this country has grown to 14 members, with entries available across numerous segments and at some relatively affordable price points. In fact, when you figure in federal, state and local incentives, customers in states like California can go electric for a net cost of under $20,000. Just know that, for our list of electric cars for 2013, we’ll only be taking into account the main federal tax credits—and that it’s not just a list of electric cars, as there are a few crossovers on the roster as well.
Also, while data from the HybridCars.com Dashboard indicates there were 13 pluggable vehicles that earned retail customers in June of 2013, the last full sales month before this article was written, Autobytel is adding a 14th, the 2013 FIAT 500e, to its list of electric cars, since it should be reaching real-world drivers in July.
A final bit of housekeeping: All pricing numbers are subject to change without notice, and remember, many entries on the list of electric cars are available with—and in some cases only with—affordable leasing terms.
