Since the very early 2000s and late 1990s, hybrid vehicles have made some absolutely enormous strides on the open market. Today, they are far cry from the rare and anomalous road-feature they were back then — in fact, there are dozens and dozens of hybrid models out there, and they are a mainstream fixture on pretty much every road in America.
From a consumer standpoint, picking out the perfect hybrid can leave you looking at a lot of different variables, but likely what most people are concerned with is fuel economy. Though hybrids don’t stack quite up to their all-electric cousins in terms of all-out fuel savings, they do present a big advantage over their gas-only rivals. With help from hybridcars.com, we’ve compiled a list of the top 20 hybrid vehicles, ranked according to their combined fuel economy. Pure EVs and plug-in hybrids — models that can operate on electric power alone — were left out.
