Also known as 'hybrid-electric', Toyota hybrid vehicles are a combination of a petrol engine and an electric motor. The hybrid technology allows the engines to operate independently of eachother, as well as together.
Using electric power to pull away, Toyota hybrids avoid producing harmful emissions from accelerating. The hybrid vehicles can even cruise at speeds up to 31 mph, using zero fuel consumption, zero tailpipe emissions and a near-silent drive. These impressive factors make up 50% of your urban journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures. What's more, UK government data shows that hybrid cars have consistently lower CO2 figures than conventional cars.
Toyota hybrid models switch seamlessly between the power sources at low speeds, and provide exceptionally efficient petrol power at higher speeds - not only saving you money and fuel, but also providing class-leading CO2 emissions.
When it comes to self-charging hybrids, clever technology is used to store otherwise wasted energy, such as from braking, to be used later. This regenerative braking system means the vehicles battery is charging even when slowing down. Another benefit of the self-charging models, is that there is no need to plug them in.
Whereas, plug-in hybrids, such as the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid, offers all the benefits of hybrid technology, partnered with a charge point, meaning the range of the vehicle can be extended by plugging it in at home or at one of the nation's many electric charge points.
No matter what kind of drive you usually use your vehicle for, Toyota hybrid vehicles offer a quiet and relaxing drive. Whether you're in the city or on the motorway, Toyota hybrids offer the same drive quality as conventionally fuelled petrol or diesel engine vehicles. The hybrid models provide a smooth and effortless ride, whilst also giving you the power in any situation, such as, cruising down the motorway or performing an overtaking manoeuvre.
