Mercedes-Benz proved to NAIAS-goers that green cars can go hand in hand with luxury by unveiling their hybrid car cousins, the E300 diesel hybrid and the E400 gasoline hybrid. Touting the E300 as the most efficient luxury car in the world, Mercedes showed off the techy amenities in both of the classy cars.
Drivers who can’t get enough of BMW’s very popular 3 and 5-series sedans can now find hybrid versions – the ActiveHybrid 3 and the ActiveHybrid 5. Both cars retain all of BMW’s envy-inducing appeal, but come equipped with fuel-saving hybrid powertrain engines under their hoods.
Volkswagen makes our list again, this time with the brand new Jetta Hybrid sedan that it unveiled on Monday at the Detroit Auto Show. Unlike the E-Bugster, which is still in concept phase, the Jetta is already poised to become one of the best-selling hybrids on the market with its fuel-efficient engine and sporty but elegant body.
