The ball is still cloudy on and plug-in hybrid cars. still being made in numbers, and delivered to very test markets. And half the exciting ones aren’t here yet.

Still, time to make some about what will and what will fail in the Here are my top 10 leading candidates, in order:

1. Chevy Volt (at right) : $41,000 plug-in hybrid, to have a sister car in the more Cadillac ELR (first seen on the show circuit as the Converj in GM has sold 3,200 so far, but the doesn’t have much to do demand — production’s been down as the company gears up for a of 60,000 a year by 2012.

2. Prius plug-in hybrid: an all-electric range of nine to 13 after which it’s a Prius, this car should a lot of fans .

3. Nissan Leaf : Some have been sold so far in the and East Coast customers are waiting patiently. The price is up for 2012 — to $38,000 for the SL trim most customers will

4. Tesla Model S: Due next this $49,990 electric is half the price of the exotic but it has far more utility. On the same Tesla will also a Model X crossover that sell really well.

5. Ford C-Max Energi hybrid: There is now downside to hybrids, except maybe price. This one is headed for the in 2012, and with 500 miles of it should be a really practical, car.

6. Ford Focus RAV4 electric (tie): your pick. The 2012 (pictured at top) is an electric of the redesigned Focus small best used as a city car an 80-mile range. It should good performance — celebrities them on Jay Leno’s show.

The RAV4 is being built Tesla, and it continues the electric of the popular crossover (which was on the market around the turn of the as a competitor for the GM EV1).

7. Fisker After many delays, the (at right) is finally on the market, or at the first set of keys has been to Leonardo DiCaprio. with Powell and Al Gore in the wings. The is a $100,000 plug-in hybrid Italian supercar good (though the BMW veteran designer is a Dane). This car has serious going for it, but it has to perform up to the hype.

8. Honda Fit/Toyota iQ city (tie): I love subcompacts, and make great bases for electric cars. These two headed for production in 2012) be evenly matched, and go head to I’m really hoping for low prices on two cars — under $30,000 be nice, even if it means a battery pack and less 100 miles of range.
