Notes:

Data on this page is compiled from fueleconomy.gov and manufacturers' data and is for general informational purposes only. Data for vehicles labeled "coming soon" are estimates based on early reports and are not to be viewed as official. All prices, technical data points and features and figures may vary based on model year and trim level. Please visit the specific manufacturer websites or ask your dealer for the latest information about each vehicle.

EV Range is the approximate distance that can be traveled on a fully charged battery using electricity only. Range can vary greatly depending on driving and environmental conditions.

Total Range is the approximate total electric and gas range of the vehicle. Range can vary greatly depending on driving and environmental conditions.

Efficiency represents the number of miles the vehicle can travel using a quantity of fuel with the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline. This allows a reasonable comparison between vehicles using different fuels. For example, you can use MPGe to compare an electric vehicle with a gasoline vehicle; even though electricity used is obviously not measured in actual gallons.

1 The CHEAPR program is able to process rebate applications from individual consumers who purchase or lease an eligible vehicle directly from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) that does not have licensed franchised new automobile dealers in Connecticut (e.g., Tesla). However, when such vehicles are authorized for sale or lease within Connecticut, applicants will be required to purchase or lease such vehicles from retail locations located within the state in order to be eligible for the CHEAPR program.

2 Federal tax credits currently apply only to new qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicles that have not reached the vehicle manufacturer volume phase-out limit. For additional information on federal tax incentives for alternative fuel vehicles, hybrid vehicles, diesel vehicles and electric-drive vehicles, visit www.fueleconomy.gov.
