10 Best 40 MPG-or-Better Cars of 2013

5. 2013 Ford Focus Electric
MSRP: $32,900
Miles per gallon: 110 city, 99 highway, 105 combined
Electric charge range: 76 miles

Of course, Ford could always just go straight electric with one of their models, too. By taking the frame of a popular, existing brand, stripping out the combustion engine and giving it all the cool electronic and mobile-based features EV owners have come to expect, Ford's begun the arduous task of carving a niche for itself in this increasingly crowded market.

How do you do that, you ask? By taking aim at the other populist electric car on the road. While the Focus Electric is a full $11,000 more expensive than the Nissan Leaf, the company takes great pains to point out that its high-capacity charger can juice up the Focus in half the time it takes the LEAF to get a full charge. During a time when electric vehicle advancements are occurring incrementally and U.S. drivers' patience with range and charging is still being tested, the Focus' familiarity and fast charging speed may mean the difference for buyers who can see beyond that vast pricing divide.
