Hot Hybrids on the Market

March 29, 2022

As mentioned previously in our other blogs, electric cars appeared to be a big talking point in 2021 as well as 2022, but what about hybrids? The latest hybrid cars have all the impressive features that the latest electric cars do, without needing to make a full commitment to using a fully electric vehicle. If you want to know more about the hottest hybrid cars on the market or if you are considering whether to sell your car for a hybrid, please continue reading.

Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla is a car which is a car which most people will appreciate. This is because the car is a subcompact vehicle, but it has enough room in the rear of the car to comfortably fit passengers. The car has actually been around for a long time, the model was introduced in Japan in 1968 as the “Toyota Sprinter” and now the Corolla is available in most countries in the world.

The Switch to Hybrid

The Corolla made the switch to Hybrid in 2013, so the vehicle was actually one of the first hybrid vehicles which were widely available on the international market. In 2022, the car is a very popular car, especially in a hybrid transmission.

There isn’t much information available about the electric range of the hybrid Toyota Corolla, but Toyota says that you do not need to plug in the hybrid to charge it, as the car charges itself, which is very impressive!

What’s so Special About the Toyota Corolla?

The Toyota Corolla is one of the most reliable cars on the car market. It was reported by Motor Biscuits, that an owner of a 1991 Toyota Corolla clocked one million miles on the car whilst it was in their ownership, this is really impressive and unheard of! This is definitely a confirmation that the Toyota Corolla is a very reliable vehicle.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan has been a popular family car for years. In 2021, VW released the Hybrid version of the Tiguan and it seems to be a great new addition to the high-quality cars that VW already produces. 

Hybrid Details of the Tiguan

The electric range of the vehicle is 30 miles, so it is enough to be used to drive around cities and urban areas. So, if you live in London for example, you can use the electric function of the car through ULEZ areas, to avoid penalties and fees for driving a fuel transmission vehicle in the zone.

Why Car Lovers Love the Tiguan

The Volkswagen Tiguan seems to be a staple in the family car market and now the manufacturers have launched a hybrid version, it appears to make the car even more appealing and accessible for people no matter where they live in the UK.

With the Tiguan, you can’t fault the build quality of the car as Volkswagen and Audi are from the same group and they always create cars of a very high standard this is why people tend to buy from VW and Audi time and time again.

The advantages of owning the Volkswagen Tiguan hybrid are:

  • The car is ideal to be used on the school run, your commute to work and even for personal usage- the car is really an all-rounder!
  • The latest version of the Volkswagen Tiguan is very high tech and the infotainment system is very up to date- it makes the car ideal for tech lovers.
  • The car is reliable and many owners of the current and older versions of the Tiguan are satisfied with the car.

Lexus NX Hybrid

The Lexus NX Hybrid is Lexus’ first-ever plug-in hybrid vehicle. If you are looking for a smart SUV that is sleek, sophisticated, and hybrid, then this could be the right car for you. The car is ideal to be used on all types of roads, as the car is very versatile.

Features of the hybrid version of the Lexus NX Hybrid include:

  • With the premium pack on the vehicle, you get special features such as front heated seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, a 9.8-inch touchscreen display, and front and rear parking sensors.
  • With the F-Sport version of the vehicle, it has most of the features that the premium pack has, but instead, the vehicle has 20-inch alloy wheels and F-Sport leather upholstery.
  • The Takumi version of the vehicle is the most expensive version vehicle and it has lots of special features such as ventilated front seats, a 14-inch touchscreen, driving seat position memory, and a sunroof.

Mini Countryman Plug-in Hybrid

Mini has been a favorite car manufacturer by the British public for many years. The company has always brought out a different version of the Mini quite frequently and now they are elaborating on their famous Countryman by manufacturing a plug-in hybrid version.

The Mini Countryman Plug-in Hybrid was released in 2017 and five years later it is still the only plug-in Hybrid model of Mini available to purchase. The Plug-in Hybrid version of the Mini Countryman is a vehicle that most people could use in their day-to-day driving.

The electric range of the Mini Countryman Plug-in Hybrid is between 29.2 and 31.7 miles, according to Car Magazine. Whilst this is not the biggest range of a hybrid car we have ever seen, it is ideal for those who drive in cities and do not want to pay charges for using fuel cars, in this way it shares similarities with Volkswagen Tiguan.

Toyota Prius

This is the second Toyota we have mentioned on our list, Toyota was one of the first car manufacturers in the world to promote the use of hybrid vehicles, so of course, another Hybrid Toyota deserves to be on this list.

The Hybrid Toyota Prius is a slightly bigger car than the Toyota Corolla, making it seem like a more mature car. The range of the Toyota Prius is also slightly more generous than the range of the Toyota Corolla, with the Prius you can expect to get up to 34 miles on the electric transmission, which could be someone’s daily commute to and from work.

The special features of the hybrid Toyota Prius are:

  • Road sign assist- the computer in the car tells you the road signs, so you will be aware of the road signs, this could stop you from missing important road signs.
  • Pre-collision system which detects pedestrians- this is a really important safety feature, especially as electric cars are much quieter than fuel cars, so this could save someone’s life!
  • Automatic high beam- so you do not have to switch your high beams on and off, the car does it for you.
  • Lane detection- it does not let you leave your lane if it is not safe to do so.
