The EPA’s 2014 car numbers are out.

My car of the year is the Chevy Spark EV and here’s why: It costs $2400/year to buy it and $500/year to fuel it making it cost less than $250/month to own. Oh and it has 400ft/lbs of torque and does a 7 second 0-60 with room for 5 people and luggage.

Last year the 2 door Scion 2013 iQ EV with (138 MPGe city and 105 MPGe) was slightly higher but also significantly smaller.
