2016 Hybrid Cars Buyers Guide

Share this Article

Hybrids are a huge deal in the industry, saving drivers money at the pumps by combining an internal combustion engine with a large battery and electric motor. Here’s what’s happening in the hybrid world.

What’s New for Hybrid Cars for 2016?

2016 Toyota Prius Front 01

The car that’s synonymous with the word hybrid has been completely redone, and the 2016 Prius is more fuel efficient than ever. Riding on a new architecture and available with a new lithium ion battery, the 2016 Prius can hit up to 56 mpg in combined driving conditions.

Toyota has also added a hybrid powertrain to its popular RAV4 compact crossover, allowing that vehicle to hit 33 MPG. The RAV4 Hybrid is only available in all-wheel drive, however, but comes with Toyota’s new safety suite of technology that adds forward collision warning and other driver assistance features.

2016 Chevrolet Volt Review

Competing with the Prius is the new Chevrolet Volt, a plug-in EV that uses a gasoline engine to improve its range. It’s now able to drive a whopping 420 miles, thanks to an updated powertrain and platform.

Other new hybrids on the market include the Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata Hybrids, while you can also expect a new Honda Accord Hybrid to debut soon.

More alternate fuel vehicles are becoming available, too, including the hydrogen-powered Toyota Mirai, the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell and the new Honda Clarity. Tesla is also expanding its lineup with a more powerful version of the Model S, and the new Model X crossover.

Kia and Hyundai are working on standalone hybrid models, the Kia Niro and the Hyundai Ioniq. Honda is also working on a new plug-in hybrid version of its Accord, although we likely won’t be seeing that until 2018.

A new Tesla should be on the way as well, called the Model 3, it will be cheaper and sized like a BMW 3 Series. The production Chevrolet Bolt will also be unveiled in 2016.
