Electric cars are the hot new thing, and internal combustion-engined, or ICE, cars are the dependable, familiar thing, but hybrids offer a taste of both worlds. Partially electrified drivetrains might not be as flashy as battery-powered EVs, but hybrids benefit from quick fill-ups and a nationwide network of gas stations, even in rural areas, along with substantially improved fuel efficiency. That means hybrids are often the best choice for many people, especially those looking to cut the costs of a long commute or those driving around town a lot. 

Whatever your reason for shopping and whatever kind of hybrid you’re after, there’s a bargain for you on this list. Here are 10 of the cheapest hybrid cars available in 2024. Prices include destination charges but do not include tax, title, or license fees, which vary by locale.
