Autoblog Green has posted a great video on the world’s first hybrid from 1900:

Think the Toyota Prius was the first hybrid automobile ever made?  Think again. Honda Insight?  Keep guessing.  In reality, the world’s first hybrid was designed and built by none other than Ferdinand Porsche, founding father of the present-day Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart.  That’s right, the same brain that brought us such ingenious machinery as the Volkswagen Beetle and the glorious Auto Union racers built the world’s first fully functional hybrid automobile.
