2023 AAA Car Guide Winners: 10 Most Fuel Efficient EVs

From small to midsize and SUV, check out the 10 most fuel efficient electric vehicles in the 2023 edition of the AAA Car Guide.
What is the AAA Car Guide?
The AAA Car Guide helps consumers navigate the evolving automotive marketplace by ranking and rating the newest vehicles, including EVs. The Guide provides consumers with reviews, based on testing by AAA Engineers, highlighting how many advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are included in the vehicle, along with other criteria and information.
Test Results and Rankings

The green cars tested by the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Automotive Research Center (ARC) are evaluated on the basis of 13 categories: emissions, fuel economy, crashworthiness, braking, acceleration, handling, cargo-carrying capacity, ride quality, interior noise, ease of entry and exit, maneuverability, roominess, and visibility. The scores for the categories are totaled, and the cars are ranked from high to low.
