In today’s technology advanced era, there is a very fine line between our desires, dreams and reality. Thanks to the innovative automobile technologies, we are driving some of the most brilliant cars of the era. However, we have overlooked the demand of our mother planet and environment in the mean time.

With a steep rise in the pollution level across the globe, it has become a necessity for automobile manufacturers to produce environment friendly vehicles. In countries like India, the government and judicial courts have already ensured that vehicles spreading pollution are no more sold or made in use. Strict laws have been implemented to regulate the sales and usage of diesel cars in highly polluted states and cities.

As a result, the car manufacturers are investing great time and capital to introduce hybrid cars in India. The Government of India has also welcomed this green step by the car manufacturers, and it is helping them with incentives on electric and hybrid vehicles under the ‘FAME India’ program.

Under the 'Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India' (FAME India) scheme, many Indian as well as International automobile brands have rolled out their best hybrid vehicles in India, which have already tasted huge success.

Here, we are listing the top cars available with hybrid technology in India:
