CarBuzz Trivia: What Automaker Created The World’s First Hybrid?

To answer this question you’ll need to go back over 100 years.

Whether you love them or hate them, hybrids are the way of the future. From daily drivers to supercars, everyone is getting in on the electric-petrol love fest. Hybrids are nothing new. In fact, the first one was created over 100 years ago. So, what company created the world’s first hybrid car?

Don’t ruin the game by cheating and make sure to leave your best guess in the comment section or the poll.
