The Fuel Sippers: Best Hybrid Cars 2008

Updated on October 30, 2012

Earth Day may be over but that doesn't mean that we can relax and stop thinking about the environment until this time again next year. The choices that we make in our every day lives have a huge impact upon the environment around us and so it is in our power to make wise choices which do as little harm to the world as possible. The best way to do this is to make changes to the activities we do daily, because that's where the real change will come. For many people, that means driving. And so, even though Earth Day 2007 is over, it's still important to think about switching over to a hybrid car.

Luckily, a number of the promising 2008 models make it easy to start thinking about going hybrid. By Earth Day next year, you could be rolling in the green with the knowledge that your daily activities are doing better for the world around you than they were just a year before. Let's take a look at which 2008 "fuel sippers" should top your car shopping list this year.

2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

The 2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

The 2008 Chevrolet Malibu is a redesigned car which is upgraded in many ways, including that it will have a hybrid option for those car buyers who are interested in going green. Shown off at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the 6-speed V6 engine on this car will maintain power while averaging over 30 mpg for freeway driving.

2008 Toyota FT-HS

Also shown off at the Detroit Auto Show was a concept car by Toyota, the FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept. Although it's still in concept form, it's looking like this snazzy car is going to be hitting the highway in the not too far away future. If so, it'll be Toyota's first sportscar to come out in awhile, making Toyota fans happy with a 400 horsepower engine that go the 0 - 60 in about four seconds. And it'll make the Earth around you happy as well since it'll only sip on the fuel as a hybrid vehicle.

2008 Saturn Vue

But what if you're past the days when a sportscar worked in your family and you need to look at getting a vehicle which is a bit bigger? That's okay; you can still be Earth-friendly in 2008. Just take a look at the 2008 Saturn Vue which is a small-yet-roomy SUV that has a sleek European design and the eco-kind qualities of Saturn's "Green Line".
