The Top 7 Hybrid and Electric Cars to Buy in 2017
Technologically speaking, this is a great year to be in the market for a new a hybrid or electric car. There are more offerings in automakers’ lineups, new green cars are faster, more economical, more luxurious, safer, and are more easily connected to the rhythms of your life.
My only complaint is that not enough are all-wheel drive models. Bad weather and road hazards are real, and drivers need the control of AWD. I get why they’re slow to making this move. Not only is it difficult to cram the extra transmission into a space with electric motors and equipment; the manufacturing runs for some of these models is small—meaning less profit per vehicle.
This means I’ve left off some really cool entry-level hybrid sedans from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Maybe they should have re-thought their re-thinking and made these vehicles front-wheel drive, like two other members of the list. There’s nothing wrong with FWD, just ask the owners of the hundreds of millions of FWD cars across the globe.
Sorry, I digress.
