Not all hybrids are boring. These cars prove it. From 1000-plus-hp supercars to electrically assisted luxury barges, here are some of the coolest hybrids you can buy new right now.
2024 Ferrari SF90 Stradale
The SF90 Stradale is Ferrari's first mainstream production plug-in hybrid, making 986 horsepower thanks to a twin-turbo V-8 and three electric motors. Power goes to all four wheels, allowing for a 0-60 time of just 2.5 seconds. Ferrari really knows how to do hybrids right.
2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray
The Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray is the first hybridized Corvette ever, pairing the base Stingray's 6.2-liter pushrod V-8 to an electric motor up front for all-wheel-drive (another Corvette first). Combined, the two energy sources make 655 hp—just 15 fewer than the top-level Z06.
2024 Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius is not the first car that comes to mind when you think performance. Toyota's practical hybrid hatchback can't match the thrills of other cars on this list, but the latest model has a speedometer that no longer ticks in single digits (up to 196 hp!), comes with all-wheel drive, and looks seriously suave. For a gas-powered car that can get up to 57 mpg, the Prius is a supercar in its own right.
2024 Honda Accord Hybrid
Sedans may be a dying breed, but there's a reason the Honda Accord is still so popular. It looks great and drives even better. The hybrid models get a 204-hp drive system that pairs a four-cylinder to two electric motors.
2024 BMW XM
The BMW XM is the M department's first standalone vehicle since the legendary mid-engine M1 supercar. It's also the first-ever M-badged hybrid, using a twin-turbo V-8 and an electric motor sandwiched in the transmission up to 738 hp. While the exterior design is questionable, the cabin is easily the nicest from BMW, ever.
2024 Volvo V60 Recharge Polestar Engineered
The V60 Recharge has a fascinating powertrain setup. Powering the front wheels is a turbocharged inline-four, while spinning the back wheels is a battery-powered motor with 41 miles of pure electric range. Total output is 455 horsepower and 523 lb-ft of torque. This is our modern-day 850 T-5R.
2024 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S E Performance
Price: $95,000 (est.)
The V-8 might be gone, but don't think the C 63 has gone soft. In its place sits one of the most powerful inline-fours ever, paired to a motor integrated into the rear axle. The trick system powers all four wheels, pushing out a total of 671 hp and 752 lb-ft of torque.
2024 Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance
Price: $270,000 (est.)
Can't reconcile the loss of the V-8 in your new AMG? Don't worry, the company hasn't fully abandoned the engine configuration just yet. The new S 63 is also a hybrid, but it keeps AMG's tried and true twin-turbo V-8 under the hood. Total output is a gargantuan 791 hp and 1055 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful sedan from AMG ever.
2024 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid
The words "truck" and "hybrid" don't usually go together, but in the world of Ford, they make an excellent all-rounder pickup. The F-150 Hybrid makes 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque, and can double as a generator for all of your power tools or tailgating supplies. It's available on 4x4 SuperCrew XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims.
2024 Ford Maverick
In base form, the Ford Maverick is one of the most compelling vehicles on sale today. The standard powertrain is a 250-hp turbo four driving the front wheels, while an optional hybrid combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder to an electric motor for a combined output of 191 hp. That's plenty for daily-driver duties and hauling stuff around. On steelies with a metal ignition key, the Maverick triggers warm 1990s memories of basic compact trucks that sit at a low height. It rides well and the hybrid can easily reach 37 mpg. Nothing else does all the Maverick can do for the price.
2024 Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid
Just because you want to travel in ultimate luxury doesn't mean you have to suffer at the pump. Bentley makes a V-6 hybrid version of its popular Flying Spur sedan, complete with the same stunning looks and world-class interior as the normal car.
2024 McLaren Artura
Coincidentally, McLaren also makes a hybridized, twin-turbo V-6-powered mid-engine supercar. It's called the Artura, and while it doesn't make as much power as the Ferrari, it's also much cheaper and drives better than most of the brand's other cars.
2024 Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid
Price: $202,000 (est.)
The sweet Sport Turismo wagon body style is gone for the Panamera's 2024 refresh. The power on the plug-in Porsche is going up, likely past 700 combined horsepower, when the new Turbo E-Hybrid sedan launches. It's a gorgeous and far more practical choice than the electric-only Taycan.
2024 Aston Martin Valkyrie
Price: $3,500,000 (est.)
This is a kinda, sorta hybrid. The Valkyrie uses a Cosworth Formula 1-based V-12 with an electric motor that gets the car moving from a stop and adds a boost of power (up to 1140 hp) at speed. It also looks like an actual LMP1 car for the road. It doesn't get much cooler than this.
2024 Mercedes-AMG One
Price: $2,700,000 (est.)
The AMG One uses two front-mounted electric motors to power the front wheels, and the hybrid turbo V-6 powertrain from AMG's F1 cars to spin the rears. If that's not cool enough for you, just know it also hold the record for quickest production car around the Nürburgring.
