Due to either bad functioning or marketing, these 5 hybrid cars and SUVs have been long forgotten. Let’s discuss them.
The forgettable, smooth and sporty little car, which was based on the previous-generation Honda Civic, also had a hybrid variant, however, it was only available in the United States for the first two model years.
It is a relatively new car with plenty of unsold units on dealer lots. It was Audi’s first production hybrid model when it debuted in 2013, however it was rapidly phased out after the 2016 model year.
BMW entered the hybrid market with ActiveHybrid variants of various models before launching its electrified I sub-brand. BMW appeared to realize the folly of its ways in 2013 when it ditched the ActiveHybrid 7’s V-8 engine in favor of the hybrid system.
The two-door ELR, Cadillac’s first plug-in, made a dramatic premiere for the 2014 model year. After only three model years and 2891 units sold in the United States, the ELR was discontinued.
The Fisker Karma was the only automobile that the nascent firm ever produced. The low-slung sedan was one of America’s first plug-in hybrids, and its 402-hp electric engine made it the fastest of its kind at the time.
