There are now more than six dozen alternative energy cars for sale in America, but we thought we’d summarize five that provide an exceptional balance of value and efficiency.

These do relatively well in monthly sales, so that means we’re not the only ones who’ve figured out these can make sense.

To be fair, we’ll confess one car exceeds $30,000, but it’s eligible for breaks and subsidized leases to potentially make its net price as though it stickered under the cut-off.

We’ll link full reviews for each, and U.S. EPA and averaged total cost of ownership data from an unaffiliated Web site for you to drill further down on any car that looks interesting.
