If you think the only thing about hybrids that’s advanced in the past decade or so is technology, think again. No longer the ugly stepchild of the automotive world, many hybrids have also arrived in the department of style. Previously, you had to be (and look like) an automotive lab rat of sorts in order to helm one — you know, weird European-style eyeglasses, Birkenstocks, probably an environmental activist t-shirt of some kind. But hybrids now push the envelope of style and even take the kind of risks manufacturers wouldn’t dare impute to their gas-powered children. We’ve helmed three stylish hybrids that run the range of prices and designs. They’re all pleasing to the eye as well as to the environment and give us hope for the future: one without hybrids that look like lozenges on wheels.
