The compact Ford Focus Electric dates back to the 2012 model year and was available nationwide. It looks nearly identical to a gas-powered Focus, but feels livelier given its torque-happy electric motor and low center of gravity. Unfortunately, while it carries the lowest listing prices among our picks, it’s also the lowest-range model at an estimated 76 miles on a charge. It got an increase to 115 miles for 2017, with Level 3 Charging capability added, but the Focus was discontinued at the end of the 2018 model year. It’s EPA-rated at 110/99 MPGe.
Typical dealer list price for a 2014 model: $8,057; 2015: $10,067; 2016: $10,582.
