The Best of Hybrid Cars (December 2010)
Toyota Prius, the benchmark
As its name indicates, it is a forerunner (Prius means ‘pioneer’ in Latin), and consequently it is a step ahead of the rest. Its innovative design has even served as an icon for the hybrid concept. Nearly 3 million cars have been sold across the world since they first appeared in Japan in 1997. Their average consumption is 3.9 litres per 100 km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 89 g/km. From €24,000.
Honda Insight, the strongest competitor
It reached Europe in 2009, but has been sold in the US since 1999. With a similar appearance and performance to the Prius, its lower price makes it the leader’s great rival. It has emissions of 101 g/km and consumption of 4.4 l/100 km. From €19,900.
The Best of Sustainable Transport
Tesla Roadster. The Californian dream.
Hollywood stars and planet-friendly politicians drive it. This small jewel manufactured in California, which has more features than the best sports cars on the market and a range of nearly 400 km, does not emit a single gram of CO2. It is undoubtedly today’s most spectacular electric car. Tesla definitely deserves the large-scale success it has achieved with this car, and has plans to expand its range of products in the coming years. From 89,000 €.
Toyota Prius. Pioneer in its category.
The Prius is already a legend. It is currently on its third generation and improves its performance and ecology with every change. The current model has new hybrid engines which officially use an average of 3.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. From 23,360 €.
