It was over a century ago, in 1900, when Ferdinand Porsche developed the first Hybrid car and it has taken 100 years for the auto industry and the driving public to take these cars seriously. Although Toyota and Honda first led the field in recent developments of the hybrid, all the auto manufactures seem to have now joined in. Here is a list of possibly the top 10 best hybrid cars available today with their year, name, price, engine size and mpg where known.
