Merging two different power sources for better performance, the Toyota Hybrid range of vehicles utilises the advantages of both petrol and electric propulsion. Experience this new eco-friendly solution today. Learn about the Toyota Hybrid range by giving our dealership a call today.
All it takes is a gentle press of the accelerator to feel the hybrid engine whirl into action. When moving at lower acceleration speeds, the power required is provided by the electric engine. This results in enhanced fuel efficiency and low emissions.
Unlike conventional petrol engines that consume fuel even when idle, a hybrid engine switches off its petrol engine while decelerating and stopping, which minimises emissions and saves fuel efficiently. The electric motor is immediately ready to take off, for a smooth and seamless ride.
Go the distance and more with Toyota Hybrid. Enjoy fuel efficiency in various driving conditions. Whether the drive is in city traffic or the wide-open road; the hybrid system leverages the petrol engine and electric engine to power the wheels and electric generator. The battery charges through regenerative braking. Whenever you brake, energy is recycled to charge the battery. Thus, giving you a quiet and smooth ride without having to fill up as regularly compared to a conventional car.
Braking immediate responsiveness and efficiency for deceleration are some of the benefits of a hybrid system. While conventional cars lose energy when braking, the Toyota Hybrid system charges itself and boosts system efficiency when braking. Due to the highly effective regenerative braking system, the kinetic energy usually lost during braking is transformed into electricity which is stored in the hybrid battery.
Need to make a swift and efficient move? No problem. When the speed increases, the powerful petrol engine is engaged. And when more acceleration is needed, power from the petrol engine and hybrid system are utilised to deliver the ultimate boost. In conjunction with the Electronically Continuously Variable Transmission, the acceleration is smooth and steady compared to a conventional vehicle.
Step into the future and move ahead with our wide range of self-charging Toyota Hybrids. Whether you’re looking for a striking SUV or a dynamic sedan, we have you covered. Expect incredible when you get behind the wheel of the RAV4 Hybrid or enjoy the vehicle that started the movement, the Toyota Prius.
Experience hi-tech innovation when you get behind the wheel of our Toyota Hybrid range with self-charging battery technology. Designed for the future, these ‘hybrid electric’ vehicles incorporate two energy sources: a petrol engine and an electric motor. This means that, unlike pure electric vehicles, you don’t have to plug them in to recharge their batteries, so you’ll never have to rely on the grid. And, with regenerative braking in our hybrids, you can brake or coast and a generator will produce electricity that will be stored in the battery for later.
The Toyota Hybrid range gets you moving powerfully thanks to a seamless switch between two power sources, a petrol engine and an electric motor to give you a more robust response when you need it. Our range of ‘hybrid electric’ vehicles delivers instant torque when you press the accelerator while at higher speeds or when overtaking on the freeway - it works in conjunction with the petrol engine to supply a stronger boost of power.
Now you can stay powered up for longer with the pioneering battery technology in the Toyota Hybrid. Engineered to last for the entire lifetime of the vehicle, these long-lasting hybrid batteries come with an 8-year/195 000km warranty. And because the Toyota Hybrid’s battery is self-charging, it never needs to be plugged in to be recharged.
Because all Toyota Hybrids are self-charging, they feature regenerative braking technology, which means electricity produced when you brake or coast is stored in the battery. This helps you to travel even further on pure electric drive and makes your journey even more fuel-efficient.
By switching seamlessly between silent electric drive at low-speed and efficient petrol power when speeds increase, Toyota Hybrids also offer class-leading CO
Thanks to the benefits of our regenerative braking, the cost of replacing parts is reduced as Toyota Hybrids produce less wear and tear of brake pads, clutch and alternator, thus reducing the risk of unforeseen costs in the future.
When you step into a Toyota Hybrid and select the Electric Vehicle (EV) mode, you will be pleasantly surprised to hear nothing at all. Experience incredible silence and serenity when you turn on the engine and enjoy a smooth ride with the EV mode, which also produces zero emissions. Now, that’s what we call inner peace.
The message is clear – Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) wholeheartedly supports the Paris Agreement and accepts the challenge to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The Paris Agreement is a legally-binding international treaty on climate change and is aimed at reducing the emission of gases that contribute to global warming. While this treaty was only adopted in 2015, Toyota has been innovating and investing in technology to reduce emissions and achieve carbon neutrality for well over 30 years. Toyota has also led the way with more electrified vehicles on the road than any other automaker.learn More
