Hybrid cars run on at least one electric motor and a gasoline motor. They reduce the burden on fossil fuels and are thus more eco-friendly vehicles. There are primarily three types of best selling hybrid cars: parallel hybrid, wherein both the gasoline and electric powertrains remain connected to a common transmission; series hybrid, wherein the gasoline motor only recharges the battery, while the electric engine generates the thrust; and plug-in hybrid, wherein you can recharge the battery by plugging it to a power source. These days, from Toyota to Porsche, every automaker is encouraging its R&D wing to develop hybrid vehicles. So, let’s have a look at the best-selling hybrid cars in the country.
The BMW 330e is an amazing plug-in hybrid in terms of both looks and performance. A combination of 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, turbocharged, petrol motor, and 112bhp electric engine churns out a mammoth 288bhp to the rear wheels. The car has a top speed of 143 mph, but, it can sprint from 0 to 62mph in 5.9 seconds. An eight-speed automatic gearbox performs the transmission duties.
