Not all hybrids are boring. These cars prove it. From 1000-plus-hp supercars to electrically assisted luxury barges, here are some of the coolest hybrids you can buy new right now.
The V60 T8 has a fascinating powertrain setup. Powering the front wheels is a turbocharged inline-four, while spinning the back wheels is a battery-powered motor with 22 miles of pure electric range. Total output is 455 horsepower and 494 lb-ft of torque—not bad for a Volvo station wagon.
The V-8 might be gone, but don't think the C 63 has gone soft. In its place sits one of the most powerful inline-fours ever, paired to a motor at the rear integrated into the rear axle. The trick system powers all four wheels, pushing out a total of 671 hp and 752 lb-ft of torque.
Can't reconcile the loss of the V-8 in your new AMG? Don't worry, the company hasn't fully abandoned the engine configuration just yet. The new S 63 is also a hybrid, but it keeps AMG's tried and true twin-turbo V-8 under the hood. Total output is a gargantuan 791 hp and 1055 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful sedan from AMG ever.
It might have the longest, most unoriginal name of any car out there, but trust us, the top-tier hybrid Panamera is a hell of a car. It makes an astounding 680 combined horsepower, and that sweet Sport Turismo wagon body style makes it even better.
The AMG One uses two front-mounted electric motors to power the front wheels, and the hybrid turbo V-6 powertrain from AMG's F1 cars to spin the rears. If that's not cool enough for you, just know it also hold the record for quickest production car around the Nürburgring.
