Hybrids from the 2010 North American International Auto Show

The 2010 North American International Auto Show is now in its second day and if we have noticed something, it is that hybrids will play a bigger part with future cars. The Detroit Auto Show has been toned down massively this year, and from what we have seen, automakers are going for quality and not quantity.

Autoblog covered a number of new green vehicles yesterday, and the surprising thing was, U.S. automakers are now getting in on the action. In the past it has been the Japanese followed by the Germans with their Hybrid vehicles, but other carmakers know that a more fuel-efficient car is the future.

Audi are to up its game in alternative propulsion solutions, the 2011 Audi A8 is a fine example of that, although we will have to wait until the Geneva Motor Show, which takes place in March.

You can always count on Honda to launch some funky new cars and the 2011 Honda CR-Z Hybrid proves just that. The Japanese automaker hopes that this model will bring some fun in to the often-boring hybrid range.

The king of hybrid has to be Toyota and the announcement of the FT-CH proves that they have not lost their passion when it comes to greener vehicles. We all know that the Prius is the benchmark, you will be pleased to learn that the stylish FT-CH will be cheaper than the best selling hybrid.

These are just a handful of the hybrids on show at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, for news on other models, visit Autoblog.
