22. Kia Ray

Debut: Chicago Auto Show
Year: 2010
Complex Says: Looking to build a cool Prius-fighter, Kia's Ray features an electric motor capable of powering the car for up to 50 miles on a single charge before the 1.4-liter engine kicks in to carry it the rest of the way. To aid in its green mission, the exterior is made extremely slippery to reduce drag and is covered in a nano-laminate film to keep the car cool, negating the need for A/C use. Cool.
