With technology booming and with a growing interest in hybrid technology, there have been a plethora of hybrid concept cars appearing on the scene at auto shows in the past couple years. Heres a look at some of the hottest and most innovative. This hybrid concept car is designed to be among the first high performance hybrid cars. With a 3.3L V6 engine, and a separate electric motor for each wheel, this car can maneuver and accelerate as well as any car available. Named for Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the battery, the Toyota Volta gets about 32 miles per gallon by combining fuel efficiency with battery power. This race car style vehicle seats three, with a two plus one seating configuration Ford Reflex.

The Ford Reflex is a hybrid concept car aimed at improving mileage and efficiency. It is designed to combine three different kinds of power: diesel, electric, solar. Currently, the Ford Reflex is said to achieve 65 miles per gallon by using a new type of battery made of lithium, like the batteries found in cell phones. The Reflex uses the same seating configuration as the Toyota Volta, with a fold down rear facing child seat so that you have the option of increasing the seating from three to four. One other cool feature of the Ford Reflex is that the insulation is made from recycled tennis shoes, making this hybrid concept car even more environmentally friendly.

The battery is able to recover energy when breaking, so that the car has a travel range up to 180 miles before needing to stop and recharge. Its lightweight, sleek and sexy body makes it very visually appealing while improving its performance and efficiency. Using only electric power, this car can achieve speeds up to 85 miles per hour. Are we likely to see any of these hybrid concept cars on the market any time soon? Maybe not. But the features included with each of them, and the technological innovations they collectively embody, can lead to many improvements in the hybrid vehicles that are sold. While some hybrid concept cars merely exist to influence the market, some have become popular street vehicles, like the Insight and the P
