Hybrid / Electric Cars of 2022

Let’s get you electrified!

Honda Insight: Hybrid

With the spirit of the Honda Civic Hybrid comes a new compact sedan, the successor of Civic, The Insight. It’s a compact sedan with a smaller shape and size. Don’t fall for its small size! It is an efficient gas-electric powertrain when you pop that hood. Just like Civic, Insight is quiet at low speeds, and mpg delivery is also better. What all you get in a Civic is present here in Insight. You get a comfortable ride, a worth mentioning pleasant interior, and a steering that gives you accurate control. Being a smaller car, you will feel a slight downfall in the acceleration. With that, you might feel Insight getting a bit noisy when you push the pedal harder. It is still a stylish sedan that will save your money on fuel. The cost of this hybrid is similar to the rival fuel cars.

Hyundai Elantra: Hybrid

This 2022 Elantra Hybrid is an eye-turner. No matter at what signal you are standing, if there is a 2022 Elantra Hybrid around, it will stand out! Thanks to its unique styling. The exterior is sharply creased sheet metal, and the interior is as spacious as it can get in a practical compact car. Talking about the cabin, it is submerged in futuristic vibes. Its futuristic design is just flawless. It also has some high-end features in it, like high-end trims, which is a wow factor for Elantra. This beauty competes with some of the heavy hitters like the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla, and the Nissan Sentra. Competing with such legends in the car world is no joke, but Elantra does it elegantly.

Honda Accord: Hybrid

Today people crave an SUV or a crossover to be a part of their tribe. We think about these folks who, in the shadows of SUV, miss out on the superb sedan. This sedan can do everything an average crossover can do. The spry handling of the Accord will give a thrill to the driver when he swirls on the twisty road. This beauty comes with two turbocharged engines, which is now a hybrid powertrain providing an efficient twist when commuting daily. With a trunk that can fit everything, it has enough space for four adults. The Accord Hybrid can be a perfect car that you can take out on trips. What makes it even better is the presence of driver assistance features and a very intuitive infotainment system. For such features, the Accord has been the editor’s choice for the year 2022.

Hyundai Sonata: Hybrid

Who doesn’t know this legendary car by Hyundai? It is among the well-known sedans that are loved by millions out there. In 2022, Hyundai just refined the car beyond limits. Hyundai Sonata is a family sedan that is appealing visually and has a good value, really! It is a mid-sizer car that has a variety of flavors. From entry-level trims to a tire squawking performance model, Sonata has it all. The performance model is the most exciting variant from the eye of a driver. It comes with a 290 hp turbo-four engine that can thrill any driver. This car has an amazing interior complete with popular tech features.

Honda CR-V: Hybrid

A 2022 CR-V will accelerate but keep your heart rate normal. Its strength lies in its capacious interior and powertrain that is fuel-efficient. These strengths make CR-V a perfect compelling crossover. To be honest, Honda CR-V has been one of my favorites since my college times. I just love this crossover. This Honda is not as fun as the sedans, but it steers and stops without any mess. It isn’t quick, even when electrified, but will give you immense pleasure when you take it out on long hauls. It will keep you relaxed on long journeys, I promise. To avoid the noisy engine, all you have to do is push the pedal gently. You could say that the 2022 Honda CR-V is not the classiest or flashiest in the segment, but this electric SUV is oddly satisfying.

Toyota RAV4: Hybrid

From pretty Prius to breathtaking RAV4, Toyota has come a long way. This growth is more apparent with the launch of the new hybrid RAV4 and RAV4 Prime (a plug-in hybrid). These electrified utes have the same persona and roominess as the standard RAV4. They even deliver the same practicality. Both of these hybrid RAV4s are way faster and quicker than their nonhybrid counterpart – especially Prime (it’s way quicker). Prime can even beat the legendary Toyota Supra (Paul Walker’s Car from Fast and Furious) with a four-cylinder engine. Prime RAV4 defeated Supra in a 5-to-60-mph rolling start acceleration test. Hybrid RAV4 is a complete package for everyone who needs an SUV that can be a racecar.

Hyundai Tucson: Hybrid

Spotted at the 2019 LA auto show, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson had an all-new design that was meant to shake up the marketplace owned by the SUVs. Can you guess the engine that powers the entry-level Tucson? This beast is powered by a more conventional 2.5 liter, four-cylinder engine that is shared by the elegant Sonata family. The 2022 Tucson is known to be the most option in the segment. It competes with top-class rivals like Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and the Volkswagen Tiguan. All-new Tucson has upped the game for these leading cars.

Kia Sorento: Hybrid

2022 Kia Sorento is a powertrain with a smaller footprint. It is a perfect and compelling substitute for a big bull that goes by the name of Kia Telluride. Both these Kia models are handsome in self with three rows each. Adults will not like to stay in far back seats for long due to obvious reasons. The Sorento is available as a plug-in or a hybrid model that maximizes fuel efficiency. If you choose Kia Sorento as your go-to vehicle, then you will get a smooth ride and will be satisfied with the handling characteristics that it offers. If you choose the Kia Sorento as your all-time vehicle, you will just ace the roads with every head turning your way without compromising the power and fuel efficiency.

Volvo V60: Hybrid

It is known that most people prefer SUVs. It is a popular belief but somewhat not true. Not everyone has the same cup of tea. We are among those drivers that love SUVs and keep up that popular belief. For us, the Volvo V60 and Volvo V60 Cross Country wagons are eye-catching machines.  These are attractive and practical alternatives for fuel-based SUVs. The Cross Country tries to be the line between crossovers and wagons, with its plastic cladding, which is quite tasteful, and a slightly taller ride height. Isn’t that great? Having so much in it, most wagon lovers will drool over the sporty Recharge T8 Polestar model of Volvo V60 that shows off a plug-in hybrid powertrain with an electric driving range of 22 miles. Not to forget the 415 horsepower that is packed inside the beast. Volvo V60 competes against some top-notch rivals that include the Mercedes Benz E Class All Terrain, the Audi A4 Allroad, and the bigger V60 Cross Country.

Chrysler Pacifica: Hybrid

Graceful, comfortable, practical, and a hell lot handsome, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is one beautiful car that will make you the apple in the eyes of your family. It is a complete family car with a pinch of a sports car vibe. This Hybrid beauty comes with either a plug-in hybrid or a regular V6 powertrain. Chrysler can also be equipped with an all-wheel-drive (optional). With more refined road manners, Chrysler Pacifica is such a pleasurable car to drive, doesn’t matter you are on long road trips or just dropping off your kids for a football game. You can fold the second and third rows and get a massive boot space. Chrysler’s base price is a little bit loftier than its rivals, such as the Honda Odyssey and the Kia Carnival. It is because the entry-level trims of Pacifica are marked under the name of Chrysler Voyager.

Volvo XC90: Hybrid

If your top priority is not the driving verve when you go for a luxury SUV that is mid-size, the 2022 Volvo XC90 would be a good choice. It has a whole lot of style and safety tech that will make it a perfect partner. This car is best suited for shuttling families, even if you won’t find much space in the far back. Still, this car has some of the best and prettiest interiors that are available on the market. In terms of interiors, it has the same place as the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne. Along with two four-cylinder options, this beauty now is offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that is packed with the power of 400 horsepower and has got the perkier acceleration. The pure electric range and fuel efficiency in XC90 are unremarkable.

Ford Maverick: Hybrid

Who doesn’t know the name of this pickup truck from Ford? Maverick is the name that redeemed Ford in the automotive world. Maverick name is given to small ford pickup trucks. These trucks are slotted into a lineup that is below the mid-size Ranger. Maverick has the same parts and mechanicals that are used in the Ranger. Apart from this, it has the same chassis as the Bronco Sport Compact Crossover. The standard powertrain in Ford Maverick is a hybrid setup that has a 2.5 Liter four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable transmission, an electric motor, and a four-wheel drive. Yes, Ford now offers four-wheel drive in the Maverick. The only thing that lags is that FWD is only offered with the optional nonhybrid turbocharge engine, 2.0 liters four-cylinder of course. Maverick is among the trucks of a new generation that made Hyundai enter the competition with Santa Cruz 2022.

Ford F-150: Hybrid

2022 Ford F-150 is a car for Greek Gods, quite literally. This car is a workhorse with a variety of trims and body styles that can be outfitted to suit any desired number of tasks you allot to it. F-150 is always appreciated by contractors and fleet managers because of its low cost and utilitarian nature. A host of powertrains are present also offered. It includes a hybrid and a diesel variant. The off-road-ready Tremor model assures that you can take it anywhere you want to. No matter what the terrain is, your F-150 will get the job done. If you own an F-150 hybrid in the future, you will the happiest truck owner, I assure you.

Rivian R1T: EV

Rivian R1T is a pickup truck of the future that we will run across the surface of the moon after we colonize it. Moon colonization is yet far from becoming a reality, but R1T is real and amazing! American startup brand Rivian is behind this flawless electric truck that will compete in the EV market, and R1T claims to have a 300-mile drive range with lightspeed acceleration. R1T is the first electric pickup that falls between Ford Ranger and Ram 1500. It Is also the first truck that was made it to production in the EV sector. Soon Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV SUT will follow its path and rule the pickup truck market.

Chevy Bolt EV: EV

The all-new 2022 Chevy Bolt EV just looks flawless inside and out. This redesigned electric hatchback comes with some enhanced features that you can try for a relatively cheaper price. When you see the 2022 Chevy Bolt, the most noticeable changes are the futuristic sheet metals and a refinished cabin that feels fresh. Nevertheless, this EV still has a front-drive-only powertrain for instant acceleration. Talking about the range, Chevy estimates that the Bolt EV 2022 is capable of covering 259 miles on a single charge. This stat gives Chevy the upper hand over the all-time favorite Hyundai Kona EV, but it falls behind the Tesla Model 3. With an affordable price, roomy interior, and smooth & satisfying driving dynamics, the Bolt EV 2022 holds some strong selling points. Let us wait for this bad boy to cruise on the streets.

Hyundai Ioniq 5: EV

Hyundai Ioniq 5 is an amazing all-electric compact crossover that is laden with advanced technologies, a futuristic aura, and a versatile interior that catches your eyes. Being a Hyundai sub-brand, the Ioniq name also applies to every upcoming EV from Hyundai, but the 5 was the first one to be debuted.

Hyundai Kona: EV

The subcompact Kona EV has retained everything that we liked in the gas-powered Kona. It is a fine basis for any electric vehicle. Kona EV lacks a four-cylinder engine. Instead, it is powered by a 201 hp electric motor. The battery pack in this EV is apt for up to 258 miles on a single charge. This number is key because the range number for an EV is the most crucial factor that is looked at when buying an EV. EV marketplace is revved-up that focuses on this range number. Chevy Bolt EV claims to have a 250-mile range, while the Tesla Model Y claims to have a 326-mile range.

Many More Cars are in the line to be added to the list. I hope you come back for more and check out more of the hybrid and EVs that will hold a place in your heart.
