Toyota all but created the hybrid market with the Prius, but now hybrids are everywhere. Hybrid systems have been slower to get into premium and luxury cars, though. Partly because adding a battery makes a heavy car heavier, and partly because people buying premium and luxury cars are less price-sensitive when it comes to buying gas. Another factor was that hybrids suffered from an image problem, and shoppers of big expensive vehicles didn’t want to buy into the whole liberal eco-warrior stereotype.
Times have changed, though. Now that batteries have gotten lighter, a hybrid system can bring more benefits than just added fuel economy, and gas is generally always rising in price. That triple-threat of benefits as well as the technology continually improving means we’re now seeing more and more premium and luxury hybrids. These are the best ones available for 2020.
