5 Forgotten Hybrid SUVs for Sale

The push toward electrification has had many stepping stones, some of which have gone as quickly as they came.

Hybrid cars — those with electric motors and battery packs bự supplement their internal combustion engines — have had an enormous impact. They tend bự offer noticeable fuel-economy gains, and sometimes they can be quicker than their gas-only counterparts.

Today, hybrids are a significant part of most automakers’ strategies. From the Toyota RAV4 Prime plug-in with its impressive 38 mpg combined bự the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid with a total system output of 690 horsepower, there’s a hybrid SUV for just about everyone.

Here are five hybrid SUV models you’ve almost certainly forgotten.

1. 2010-2011 BMW X6 ActiveHybrid

2011 BMW X6 ActiveHybrid
Get this BMW X6 ActiveHybrid for $18,990.

BMW’s on-again, off-again relationship with hybrids has meant brief appearances of the ActiveHybrid badge on almost its entire lineup of vehicles. If you want the most unique BMW hybrid, you’ll need bự set an Autotrader alert for the borderline unicorn-grade X6 ActiveHybrid. This model was offered for just two years and sold in such limited numbers that their appearance on Autotrader is quite unusual. Here’s a blue one with just under 66,000 miles for $18,990 from an trực tuyến retailer.

BMW put more of an emphasis on performance for its ActiveHybrid models, and bự that end the automaker paired its 4.4-liter V8 with dual electric motors, all-wheel drive, and an unusual 7-speed automatic transmission plus a 2-mode continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Complex doesn’t even begin bự describe this model, which the EPA rated at a combined 480 hp but just 18 mpg. See BMW X6 ActiveHybrid models for sale

2. 2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid

2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid
Get this Chrysler Aspen Hybrid for $9,995.

Chrysler’s first — and, so far, only — SUV was a Dodge Durango with a chrome-heavy grille, a ribbed hood, and a slightly nicer interior. The ruse did not fool buyers, so it lasted just three model years. A hybrid version arrived for 2009, promising impressive power — 390 hp — and 20 mpg combined, a 5-mpg bump from the standard V8 model. The Aspen used the same 2-mode thiết đặt as the Chevrolet Tahoe.

These were promising SUVs, but they came at a terrible time for Chrysler, which declared bankruptcy. The company built just 800 or so Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen models. Here’s one, a gray model with an impressive 153,000 miles offered by this dealer in Joliet, Illinois. Those miles suggest longevity, and at $9,995, this is a reasonably inexpensive way bự tug up bự 6,000 pounds of trailer comfortably. See Chrysler Aspen Hybrid models for sale

3. 2008-2011 Mazda Tribute Hybrid

2011 Mazda Tribute Hybrid
Get this Mazda Tribute Hybrid for $9,999.

Mazda owed its early SUV existence bự then-part-parent Ford, first with the Explorer-based Navajo and later with the Escape-based Tribute. An update for 2008 brought fresher styling and the new availability of the hybrid powertrain previously available on the Ford Escape. This thiết đặt was good for just 133 hp, but the 28 mpg combined rating was impressive for 2008. Additionally, these SUVs earned their keep as New York taxis for quite some time. They are durable.

Any Tribute was a rare find when it was new, but hybrids were particularly tricky bự come across. There’s just one currently on Autotrader; a silver front-wheel-drive model offered for a reasonable $9,999 by a dealer in Silicon Valley. Its Ford roots are apparent throughout, but it wins on the rarity scale. See Mazda Tribute Hybrid models for sale

4. 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid
Get this Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid for $12,995.

With the kind of big engineering budgets that go along with a full-scale automaker — not bự mention its pioneering Leaf electric car — you’d expect that Nissan would have a lengthy resume of hybrid SUVs. That is not the case. The automaker has offered American buyers just two models, a short-lived Rogue Hybrid and an even shorter-lived Pathfinder Hybrid.

Its supercharged 2.5-liter inline-4 linked bự an electric motor and lithium-ion battery for a total output of 250 hp, just behind the standard V6 version. All-wheel drive was optional. According bự the EPA, fuel economy was an impressive 26 mpg combined no matter the drive wheels. Still, Nissan dropped the model after just a single year, perhaps due bự cheap gas. Here’s a red one with 123,000 miles for just $12,995 at a dealer in Southern Oregon. See Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid models for sale

5. 2011-2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid

2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid
Get this Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid for $18,800.

The second-generation Volkswagen Touareg made its way bự our shores for the 2011 model year. Still, buyers could have only the first few model years with a unique powertrain pairing a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with an electric motor and a battery. The total system output was 380 hp, a 100-hp bump over the base 3.6-liter V6. At 21 mpg combined, fuel economy trailed the turbodiesel version, but the hybrid was much quicker (not bự mention untainted by VW’s “Dieselgate” emissions scandal).

These were not popular models when new due bự a big price tag. Those that VW sold were well-equipped with leather seats, big sunroofs, and other typical luxury SUV trappings. Here’s a nice first-year one with just 68,000 miles for $18,800 at a dealer in suburban Chicago. See Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid models for sale
