2019 Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid -- The Ioniq Hybrid is a serious competitor for the Prius Prime, delivering comparable fuel economy and electric-only range for less money. It's also more enjoyable to drive.
2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid -- The Clarity can go 48 miles on electricity, meaning it could be a better choice than the Prius Prime for those with longer commutes. It's also a bigger, more substantial and luxurious car.
2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid -- The Niro's all-electric range matches the Prime's and offers a distinctive crossover body style. Its fuel economy when not in all-electric mode isn't as good as the Prime, but it's still an excellent 46 mpg combined. Watch how much will fit in the Niro Plug-In Hybrid's trunk.
2019 Chevrolet Volt -- This is the last year for the Volt, but it's still a viable choice thanks to a class-leading 53 miles of electric range.
