TORONTO, August 13, 2008 -- Today, Kanetix (www.kanetix.ca), Canada's insurance marketplace, released its list of 2008's Top 10 Most Popular Hybrids as indicated by the hybrid auto insurance quotes Canadians are seeking through Kanetix.ca.

Listed are the Top 10 hybrids quoted online for car insurance the first six months of 2008:

  • Toyota Prius
  • Honda Civic Hybrid
  • Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Ford Escape Hybrid
  • Toyota Highlander Hybrid
  • Lexus RX400h
  • Honda Accord Hybrid
  • Nissan Altima Hybrid
  • Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid
  • Saturn Vue Green Line Hybrid

As gas prices continue to rise, it seems that the hybrid market is steadily growing as well. Co-founder of Kanetix.ca, George Small explains, "In the first six months of 2008, hybrid auto insurance quotes on our site have already reached 74 per cent of 2007's total. If the trend continues, 2008's total hybrid quote activity should not only match 2007 but actually exceed it by almost 50 per cent."

While it's impossible to tell if the hybrid trend is due to environmentally conscious consumers, or just people looking to save a buck on gas, Kanetix.ca makes it possible to compare auto insurance and find the best quote for that hybrid, or any other vehicle for that matter.
