Hybrid cars may be a bit pricey to buy and maintain, but in the wake of global warming, they do hold a bright future. There are several manufacturers who are working hard towards developing electric cars, such as Honda, Suzuki, Toyota, and Hyundai. Here’s an overview of the most promising electric cars of the lot:
- Suzuki Swift Hybrid
Christened as the ‘Range Extender,’ the hybrid variant from the house of Suzuki will fast make its way into the automobile market. Reports reveal that the hatchback will offer three modes – hybrid, parallel hybrid, and all-electric. In the hybrid mode, the petrol engine will serve as a generator, responsible for powering the lithium-ion battery, which, in turn, would fuel the electric motor. On the other hand, in the parallel mode, the petrol and electric motor will together provide power to the wheels. It is said that it will take about 1.5 hours to get fully charged. Of course, the fuel economy is brilliant, with an expected rate of 48.2 km per litre. It is anticipated that the electric driving range would be around 25.5 kms.

- Honda Accord Hybrid
Honda has always been revered as the most eminent maker of entry-level luxury sedans. However, it is now all set to introduce the Honda Accord Hybrid, which will come outfitted with a 2-litre, 16-valve i-VTEC petrol engine mated to the electric motor. There is a fully efficient on-board lithium-ion battery. While the petrol unit would be capable of producing 141bhp, the combined output of the vehicle is expected to be a whopping 196bhp along with a torque of 306Nm.
- Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
The renowned car maker Hyundai is also working on a luxury hybrid car. Dubbed as Sonata Hybrid, this four-wheeler will come equipped with a plug-in technology and a 2.0-Litre GDI 4-cylinder engine with Blue Drive fully parallel HEV system. Other specifications include Interior-Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor, a 360V lithium polymer battery, and Hybrid Starter Generator (HSG).
Of course, there are several other electric cars in the pipeline; however, these are the ones which seem to be making the most noise in the market.
