Those first few tries with the Prius has led to much further strides into the hybridization of automobiles. Even the latest crop of hypercars use some form of hybridization.
That said, it’s becoming increasingly popular for luxury auto marquees to offer some form of hybrid drivetrain as well.
Mercedes now offers its own plug-in-hybrids, as well as the likes of Porsche, Audi, and BMW. But don’t forget about Cadillac.
And in that future, hybrids are definitely going to be more relevant. These new statements, though, have sparked wild rumors of GM possibly building hybrid all-wheel versions of the ATS (plausible), Camaro (unlikely), and Corvette (you’re out of your mind). We’ll have to wait and see.
