Toyota offers the most electrified hybrid vehicles by any manufacturer.
How does a Toyota hybrid work?
Toyota hybrid vehicles are able to operate in full electric mode, gasoline only mode, and seamless combinations of both. The Hybrid Synergy Drive meshes both sources of power.
Vehicle Start Up
In most conditions, only the electric motor is engaged, saving fuel and delivering instant torque with minimal emissions.
Accelerating and Crusing
The gas engine and electric motor team up to provide the ideal mix of power for seamless acceleration. Excess energy is used to help recharge the battery.
Decelerating and Braking
The electric motor takes over. The regenerative braking system converts braking energy into electric energy to help recharge the battery onboard the vehicle.
Resting and Reversing
When stopped, the gas engine shuts down to conserve fuel — unless the battery is running low. When reversing at low speed, only the electric motor is required.
Why choose a gas/electric hybrid vehicle?
Toyota hybrid vehicles combine the efficiency of electric vehicles with the lack of range anxiety of traditional gas engine vehicles.
How long do the batteries last?
Over 98% of the Toyota hybrid vehicles sold in Canada since 2001 have never had their original battery replaced. All hybrid components, including the hybrid battery, are backed by an 8-year or 160,000 KM* warranty. (*Whichever comes first)
Do I need to plug in my Toyota hybrid?
Toyota hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking and the gasoline engine to charge the battery. No need to plug it in. The one exception is the Prius Prime. The Prius Prime allows the option of charging by wall outlet and driving in full EV mode for up to 40kms without the assistance of the gasoline engine.
Will my Toyota hybrid require additional maintenance?
Not only do Toyota hybrids follow the same maintenance schedule of every 6 months or 8,000 KM (whichever comes first), but the way the hybrid system works can reduce how often other areas of the car need servicing. In a hybrid, the engines are off some of the time, the brakes are regenerative, saving pad & rotor life, there is no transmission fluid under load, and there are no starters, alternators or belts to be replaced.
