IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2014: New-car shoppers looking to make the switch from all gas to a hybrid vehicle may be surprised to know they have more than 20 models to choose from that are priced under the $30,000 mark. Sorting through all these options, the expert editors at Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the leading provider of new and used car information, have chosen their list of the 10 Best Hybrid Cars Under $30,000. By hand-picking the top hybrids out of all the available choices, the KBB.com experts have simplified the decision process by aiding shoppers in making the most informed car buying choice.

"With many hybrid vehicles priced under $30,000, shoppers are confronted not only with complicated new technology but also with unfamiliar nameplates," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director of Kelley Blue Book. "The goal of the list is to help consumers who might be new to hybrid vehicles get a head start in identifying a vehicle that will fulfill their needs. Topping our list is the Toyota Prius with the best fuel economy, undeniable practicality, and exceptionally high resale value. It's truly the king of all hybrids."
