Why is the Prius off the list? There are at least 3 different types of prius now, with a plug-in coming soon, and the Prius line tends to offer the best solution for most people. It is not an accident that they are so ubiquitous. There are dozens of options for hybrids and electrics, but all have different strengths and weaknesses. As with any car, the size of the car you want, how you plan to use it and personal preference all factor in to what is best for you.
There is also a huge difference between hybrid and electric, in terms of usability, practicality and charging requirements.
