We saw Google label some car types as electric and hybrid a year ago. Now Google has this car carousel in the mobile search that lets you filter by many other car types.
Saad AK posted this on Twitter and I am able to replicate myself by searching for [cars] on mobile:
You are given tons of filter options, from electric, hybrid, all-electric, gasoline, automatic, 5-passenger, all-wheel drive, number of cylinders, price ranges, luxury and many more.
I am not 100% sure this is new, since I can replicate it and it feels familiar, but Melissa Fachs is in this space and she said it was new:
I haven’t seen that in the middle of the SERPs and I look at car stuff all day. I have seen them testing filters for vehicles, but not like this.

Here is a video of this in action:
Google > Mobile
I saw a Carousel of Cars in the middle of the SERPs with search filters.
I haven’t seen it happening for the car query before.
