With gas prices in a con­stant state of flux, and the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment offer­ing as much as $7,500 in incen­tives to buy “green” cars, it would seem the only ques­tion for some­one buy­ing a new vehi­cle should be, “Which one do I pick?”

Kel­ly Blue Book attempts to answer that ques­tion with its list of Top 10 Green Cars for 2013. The car in the top spot shouldn’t be a big sur­prise: the 2013 Nis­san Leaf.

“You won’t find an all-elec­tric car that offers a bet­ter bal­ance of range, prac­ti­cal­i­ty, refine­ment and val­ue than the Leaf,” accord­ing to the sto­ry on the company’s web­site. “Nis­san reduced the Leaf’s start­ing price by $6,000 for 2013, so after the $7,500 fed­er­al tax sav­ings, you can go all-elec­tric for about $22,000.”

“A grow­ing num­ber of eco-con­scious dri­vers are going ‘green’ when it comes to the new car they choose to dri­ve, and auto man­u­fac­tur­ers have primed the pump with the widest array of offer­ings in the ‘Green Car’ seg­ment than ever before,” said Jack R. Ner­ad, exec­u­tive edi­to­r­i­al direc­tor and exec­u­tive mar­ket ana­lyst for Kel­ley Blue Book.

Kel­ly Blue Book’s top 10 “green” cars:

  • Nis­san Leaf
  • Tes­la Mod­el S
  • Ford Focus Elec­tric
  • Chevro­let Volt
  • Prius Plug-in
  • Ford C-Max Ener­gi
  • Volk­swa­gen Jet­ta Hybrid
  • Hon­da Fit EV
  • Toy­ota Aval­on Hybrid
  • Lin­coln MKZ Hybrid
