One of the big selling features is the fact that it has two unique options, the hybrid engine with the Energi plug-in hybrid. This means you get the great features of plugging in your car to the wall to change, but also the liquid cooled Li-ion battery pack. The Energi is gaining a lot of attention for being one of the best battery options on the market since it gives out some unique features like smartphone app integration to let you know when your vehicle needs charging, and where a charging station is. Coming in with fuel mileage of 47/44 and a cost of $25,500 – $32,900, this is a great option that can’t be beat.
