16.0 kwh battery, 33 miles (EPA), 84 MPGe, 63 kw and 85 kw motors, (260 hp combined)

The Pacifica Hybrid is both the first plug-in hybrid minivan, and the first plug-in hybrid from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, whose CEO is notoriously critical of electrified vehicles. Its powertrain combines an Atkinson-cycle V-6 engine with an electric drive system with two motors. Both are capable of driving the Pacifica Hybrid's front wheels, but one motor is typically used as a generator.

2017 Ford C-Max Energi

2017 Ford C-Max Energi - $27,995

7.6 kwh battery, 20 miles (EPA), 95 MPGe, 88 kw motor (195 hp combined)

Ford's plug-in hybrid tall wagon is getting somewhat long in the tooth, but it does offer a fairly practical package. The C-Max is actually sold in Europe with non-electrified powertrains, it is only offered in the U.S. as a hybrid or this Energi plug-in hybrid model.

2017 Ford Fusion Energi

7.6 kwh battery, 22 miles (EPA), 97 MPGe, 88 kw motor (195-hp combined)

The Ford Fusion Energi mid-size sedan shares its powertrain with the C-Max Energi, but for 2017 changes to its powertrain control software and regenerative braking algorithms yielded a slight boost in all-electric range. That range is now 22 miles, up from 20 before. The Fusion Energi also gets the same exterior and interior styling changes as the rest of the 2017 Fusion lineup.

2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid

2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid - $35,435

9.8 kwh battery, 27 miles (EPA), 99 MPGe, 50 kw motor (202 hp combined)

Like Ford, Hyundai offers both hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of its mid-size sedan. The Sonata Plug-In Hybrid is in most mechanical respects identical to the Sonata Hybrid, but uses a larger battery pack and a more powerful electric motor.

2017 Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid

2017 Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid - $36,105

9.8 kwh battery, 29 miles (EPA), 103 MPGe, 50 kw motor (202 hp combined)

The Kia Optima Plug-in Hybrid is a virtual twin of the Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, sharing a powertrain and body shell with the Hyundai mid-size sedan. However, the Kia has slightly higher EPA electric range and efficiency ratings. That, along with different styling and a slightly higher base price, distinguishes the Optima from its Sonata sibling.

2017 Mercedes-Benz C350e

6.4 kwh battery, 11 miles (EPA), 51 MPGe, 60 kw motor (275 hp combined)

While BMW leads the German luxury brands in plug-in hybrids, Mercedes-Benz is catching up. Just as the standard C-Class competes against the BMW 3-Series, the C350e competes against BMW's 330e iPerformance model. But while the Mercedes boasts more power, it has a smaller battery pack, and trails the BMW in electric range and efficiency.
