Top 5 Most Efficient Hybrid Models
|   Thursday, August 18, 2016
In Europe hybrid cars are becoming more successful, as demonstrated by recorded sales from manufacturing companies. According to statistical specialists, in Europe sales of hybrid and electric vehicles registered a significant increase.
In the first half of 2015 sales of 7 million units were seen, which means they have sold 8.2 percent more cars than in the same period of 2014. On the European market there are quite a few popular hybrid cars which have seen record sales and which are efficient in terms of fuel consumption.


Among them we have the Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3E GTE-Tron, which announced a combined fuel consumption figure of 1.5 liters / 100 km, the Volvo V60 plug-in with a combined consumption of 5.2 liters / 100 km, BMW i8 with 2.5 liters in the technical data sheet, or the Opel Ampera's about 7 liters / 100 km.

5. Ford C-Max Hybrid
The Ford C-Max Hybrid is a car more fun to drive than other hybrid cars. The steering is firm and responsive and the chassis is well done, giving the car an athletic feel. An engine that produces 141 horsepower is enough to make the car quite strong and fuel consumption is a decent 6.7 liters / 100 km in town and 7.6 liters / 100 km on the highway.

4. Chevrolet Volt/ Opel Ampera
The drivetrain of the Chevrolet Volt is a petrol-hybrid one which offers a range of 85 km in electric mode. Once the battery is consumed, the traditional engine comes to recharge them and continue to run.
Total range for the Volt is 675 kilometers and gives the car a consumption of 8.1 liters / 100 km in the city and 7.1 liters / 100 km on the highway. The car is powered by a four-cylinder Atkinson in-line petrol engine that offers 101 horsepower.

3. VW Jetta Hybrid
Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid is a dual vehicle, which means that the car has two engines: one turbo engine with a displacement of 1.4 liters and an electric motor that takes its power from a battery pack mounted in the back.
Together they provide 170 horsepower. When it is not needed, the petrol engine may stop. The Environmental Protection Agency in the United States estimates for the Jetta Hybrid an efficient consumption of 6.7 liters / 100 km in the city and 5.9 liters / 100 km on the highway.

2. Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid
Instead of having a petrol engine assisted by an electric motor, like all other cars, the Porsche Cayenne has two different engines. The first is a super V6 engine on petrol with a displacement of 3.0 liters, producing 416 horsepower, while the second is electric. Estimated average consumption is 3.4 liters / 100 km.

1. Toyota Prius
The small engine with a displacement of 1.8 liters and the electric motor provides 134 horsepower together. When driving in an efficient manner the Prius consumes 3.33 liters / 100 km in the city and 3 liters / 100 km on the highway, making it one of the most efficient hybrid cars on the market, exceeded only by fully electric vehicles.
