The government’s ranking of the 10 most fuel-efficient cars for 2014 doesn’t sport any fuel at all. The 10 vehicles on the list by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy are all either 100 percent electric (EV) or plug-in hybrids.

Keeping in mind that one gallon of gasoline equates to 33.7 kilowatt-hours, the vehicles on the list all achieve at least 58 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). Though the Nissan LEAF is the highest selling EV, it did not make the cut. None of Elon Musk‘s Tesla models are listed either.

Here are most efficient 2014 models on the market:
