Fastest hybrid cars of 2024

Hybrid cars are all about fuel economy and low emissions, right? Well, yes, but that doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing performance. Go for any of the cars on this list and you can enjoy rapid acceleration while doing your bit to cut emissions and improve local air quality. Here’s our rundown of the fastest hybrid cars you can buy through carwow.

It's worth highlighting that plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models are the mainstay of this list, as conventional hybrids that can't be plugged in tend to prioritise efficiency over performance.

Fast hybrid cars FAQs

That would be the McLaren Speedtail, which produces 1,070hp thanks to its petrol-electric setup. The Speedtail is certainly quick, with a top speed of 250mph, but it's not geared for efficiency, officially returning 18.1mpg. An honourable mention must go to the Koenigsegg Regera, which made 1,521hp thanks to its engine and trio of electric motors, although this is no longer in production.

The Speedtail has a higher top speed, but The 986hp Ferrari SF90 Stradale accelerates faster, taking just 2.5 seconds to go from 0-62mph - half a second quicker than the McLaren. If we're moving away from limited-run exotica, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid takes just 3.2 seconds to go from 0-62mph, and you can even get it as a sensible(!) estate if you go for the Sport Turismo version.

Diesel hybrids are a real rarity, which leaves the Mercedes E-Class E300de to take that honour with its 5.9 second 0-62mph time (6 seconds for the Estate).
