Hybrid Cars – Which is the fastest hybrid 0-60 and quarter mile?

We all know hybrid cars aren't made for speed, but rather fuel economy, right? Well, yes. While that is their main purpose, hybrid cars are getting more and more advanced, even to the point of manufactures starting to enter hybrid cars into races and doing pretty well! One of the first hybrid cars to come out with some fun potential is the Honda CRZ. It has everything from intake, exhaust and body kits available to even people planning superchargers and turbos.

So as we get more and more customers coming to us asking how they can make their hybrid more fun to drive, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of which are the slowest and which are the fastest hybrid cars, listed from fastest to slowest.

We'll add to this list as more hybrids come out, but we think this is a fun list.

Note: We did not include electric only cars.

  1. There is no such thing as a hyundai sonata hybrid turbo, they have a hybrid and a turbo but not both. The time you have listed is the turbo time.

  2. Where are the Lexus GS & LS hybrids? They are both under 6 seconds.
