When going from 0 to 60 miles per hour, the Nissan Leaf may be about three seconds slower than the Tesla Model S, but when it comes to Kelly Blue Book's list of "10 Best Green Cars of 2013," the Leaf beats out its more expensive all-electric brethren.
KBB put the Leaf at the top of its list, noting that "you won't find an all-electric car that offers a better balance of range, practicality, refinement and value." The number two – the Tesla Model S – was also commended for being "among the coolest cars available, electric or otherwise." KBB named the Ford Focus Electric the third-best green car, followed up by the Chevrolet Volt extended-range plug-in and the Toyota Prius Plug-in.
Rounding out KBB's top ten were the Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid; the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid; Honda Fit EV; the Toyota Avalon Hybrid; and the Lincoln MKZ hybrid. In case you lost track, KBB's top 10 included four electric vehicles, three hybrids, two plug-in hybrids and an extended-range plug-in. Would your top ten list look the same?
