    It was difficult to find a complete list of electric cars available specifically in the US but the list on the link below seems up-to-date, and it claims to display the top ten (that is the ten “best”) electric cars coming to the US in 2009/2010. Being that its almost 2012 there are probably more options by now but hopefully this satisfies your curiosity.
