Best hybrid sports cars of 2024

Electric cars have the potential to be more economical and environmentally friendly than petrol or diesel vehicles. Most are extremely quick, too, although they lack the captivating soundtrack of a finely tuned petrol engine.

To harness the best of both worlds, auto manufacturers have been adding electrical assistance to their latest petrol-powered performance offerings. These hybrid sports cars can use their electric assistance for both enhanced economy and performance. We pick 10 of the best ones available.

Best hybrid sports cars FAQs

Just about every major auto manufacturer offers hybrid powered cars these days, and while not all are explicitly 'sporty', the nature of hybridisation means many are impressively swift. Legacy manufacturers like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Land Rover, Porsche, Volvo and Volkswagen have a selection of fast hybrid cars on offer including two-door coupes, saloons and SUVs. Younger brands like Hyundai, Kia and Lexus also have an impressive line-up of hybrid sports cars.

Yes. A hybrid setup adds one or more electric motors and a battery pack to the combustion engine. While many hybrids are geared around efficiency, car makers can also tune them for performance, using the electric motor to boost the petrol engine under hard acceleration.

The additional weight of the electric motor and especially the battery pack does increase overall weight, and this can have a negative impact on braking and handling.

With technology constantly improving and evolving, this is a moving target. The original trio of hybrid hypercars (Mclaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder) could all exceed 210mph and blast from 0-62mph in around 2.5 to 2.8-seconds. 

Eight years on, these figures are still among the best in the world, however, the next generation of hybrid sports cars like the McLaren Artura and Ferrari 296 GTB are almost as quick and now cost only as much as a small apartment, instead of a stately country pile.

The 245bhp Volkswagen Golf GTE comes in at just over £39,000 and is almost as quick as the Golf GTI with the potential for appreciably lower running costs. The Cupra Leon 1.4-litre e-Hybrid is essentially the same car and is even cheaper, at £37,000. 

The BMW i8 was released in 2014, becoming one of the first hybrid sports cars. It went out of production in 2020, but still looks fresher than some much newer designs.

It combined a small three-cylinder turbocharged engine with an electric motor to deliver 369bhp which gave it rapid if not supercar-like performance. This mid-engined sporty hybrid with butterfly doors and eye-catching styling can still be found for sale at a big discount to what it cost new. Check out carwow's range of used BMW i8 deals.
