An electric diesel hybrid vehicle may be a dream come true for fuel savers around the world, but the concept is still new to the market. Most hybrid vehicles on the market today are made to work with gasoline and electricity, not diesel fuel. Nevertheless, there are a few select diesel hybrid models set for the future that are expected to revolutionize the way people drive. Here are a few of the options.
This vehicle has been long discussed on car forums because it was supposed to pave the way for diesel hybrids on the market. It may have done just that. The Benz E300 is expected to push the Toyota Prius straight out of the limelight when it comes to hybrid vehicles because of the fuel saving capabilities of its diesel powered engine. This car is expected to produce more than 60 miles per gallon of fuel, and it is based off the existing Benz E-Class vehicles.
News sources have reported the launch of a diesel hybrid by Porsche that still ranks well with the company in terms of comfort and driveability. This car features the sleek looks that Porsche is known for, but it does so with a fuel economic engine under the hood. It will work well as a low or high mileage diesel car.
The Chevy Volt is a well known hybrid that is expected to launch with a plug-in diesel option some time in the near future. This car will run largely on electricity and will only need the fuel to cover the range of power and longevity it cannot.
