The very first thing that popped in my head was a 62ish Ford and a performance model like the Thunderbolt.
Now to go to google and see if I am close.

I love the car names of that era! "Dorf" Starliner. Olds Starfire. Cutlass. Lancer, Golden Hawk, Fury, Wildcat and many others - each with some sort of image, each conveying a different attitude


Now we get GX-i, GLE, IS, ES, and all the other alphabet soup, accompanied by names that mean nothing whatever like Aveo, Flex, and Rondo

What was the first "Hybrid" car? (Hybrids meaning, in this case, having a gasoline engine and an electric motor)

Interestingly enough I was just reading about that car the other day. I will wait to see if anyone else cares to answer before I jump in, since I have a bit of an advantage.

Oh my goodness, I will bet it was in the very early 1900's.

I am thinking Woods automobile was the first American hybrid 1914,they were earlier made in eurepean companys ,but I belive this is questions for American made vehicles.

Ferdinan Porsche 1898 ,probably spelled wrong

Woods was the first American to build a hybrid. In 1905 Francis A. Woods created a vehicle that he dubbed the Interurban. It was an electric car that could be converted to use gasoline power in less than ten minutes. .

This is the only picture I could turn up but it looks like something built after 1905. Several sites show the same image.
