Hybrid technology since 1969: Way back in 1969, Toyota started developing Hybrid technology.
We went into production in 1997 and have been leading the way ever since.

Key milestones to note

In our Hybrid history include the launch of the Toyota century in 1975, one of the first gas turbine Hybrids, and more recently the Auris Touring Sports in 2013, the World’s first compact estate Hybrid.
