For many folks hybrid vehicles have a negative aura about them. Some of that is the fault of poorly executed models over the past two decades, and some is due to the most successful, and arguably best engineered hybrid, the Toyota Prius.

And you can’t blame them. The Prius is tops both in sales and fuel economy. Unfortunately it’s also both odd looking and dull to drive.

It goes without saying then, that while it may be good; the Prius isn’t the perfect hybrid. In fact, we’d go so far to say that an uncompromised, fuel efficient, fun-to-drive hybrid isn’t yet out there, but it’s very close. If we had our choice, here’s what would make up the ‘perfect’ hybrid, which would be fuel friendly and not a bore.

Looking at all the gasoline-electric cars currently on sale, the components of the perfect hybrid are out there. While better performing technology is possible (and available), it would be a good idea to keep the price point around or below the $30,000 mark. Finally, benchmarking one of the most competitive and biggest segments in the industry, we imagine the car to be a four-door mid-sized sedan, something that can be both family friendly, practical and enjoyable to drive.

Past two decades lot of automobile companies making the hybrid cars but Now Toyota and Honda introduces the latest technology which called gasoline electric cars and these vehicles have awesome fuel average. Recently Honda introduces hybrid accord which fuel averaged 70 KM/Liter and its new generation vehicles.

"PERFECT" HYBRID

1. Stiff Body Structure (I'm spending many hundreds of $$ on that for my Prius V buying sway bars, strut tower bars and body braces from "Juiced Hybrid".)

2. Great Steering (This means good response and road feel.)

3. Instant Great Throttle Response (YOU decide when you get power, not some mileage nannying computer algorithm. Better electric motors are most of the answer.)

4. Responsive, ADJUSTABLE Handling ("We have the technology.")

5. Inspired, Beautiful, Efficient Styling (My Prius V is the biggest styling step forward so far. I give it a "B")

Get those paramaters nailed and you will sell many millions more hybrids.
