Huffington Post Lists Its “Top 7 Electric Cars of 2013”
…and the list is mostly a hot mess.
Here’s the title of the Huff Post article: “The Top 7 Electric Cars of 2013.”
And here’s the introductory paragraph:
“As gas prices creep up, more people are turning to hybrid and electric cars to reduce their fuel costs. Still, the number of electric cars sold is only a tiny percentage of the overall number of vehicles moving off car lots annually. Recent price wars have helped drive interest and purchases. If you’re ready to put a little more money up front for long-term savings in the years ahead, check out this list of the best electric and hybrid cars to buy this year.”
Now it’s time for that list:
- Tesla Model S
- 2013 Toyota Prius V
- 2014 Ford Fusion Energi
- 2013 Nissan Leaf
- 2013 Honda Fit
- 2013 Mitsubishi MiEV
- 2014 Audi A3 E-Tron
Notice any issues with this list? The most glaring oversight is the inclusion of the Toyota Prius V, which is definitely not an electric vehicle, but the intro graph from Huff Post did say “hybrid,” so we guess its inclusion fits according to the guidelines listed.
The Audi A3 e-Tron? C’mon, that’s not even going to available in this calendar year. And the Mitsubishi i-MiEV? Should it be placed in the top 7?
What would your “Top 7 Electric Cars of 2013” look like?
