In general I agree with this list. From this short article it is not clear as to what is the criteria for the ranking. Fuel economy would upset the order in the list.

I think the Volt starts around the mid thirties. I believe Chevy advertises a lower price factoring in the federal tax credit you would receive since its a low emissions electric car or something like that. In a very simplified way to describe it, the Volt is basically an electric car with an onboard gas powered generator to charge the battery. A bit different then your typical gas engine/elect motor driven hybrid.

Volt's prices should not take into account any Fed or state tax. They should honestly price their EV so that more could afford to drive it. This is the reason I chose to buy a Prius, which I am very satisfied with the mpg.
