As the call for clean environmentalism and alternative renewable energy sources increases, several companies have initiated a policy to implement these techniques in their manufacturing processes. The car manufacturing industry is one of the areas with the most to benefit from pursuing this cause by building eco-friendly vehicles.

The new cars, which will be known as electric cars, are equipped with smaller, lighter and inexpensive batteries. Even the driving range of these new cars has increased significantly. Add to that the fact that insurance on some electric car models that have been out for a while is now comparable to that of standard cars and the lease options that are available, electric vehicles are becoming a more compelling choice to new car buyers. Below are some of the top 2014 electric cars:
