Toyota Hybrids are known as ‘Hybrid-electric’ vehicles because they incorporate two energy sources: a petrol engine and an electric motor. These two engines operating independently of each other is what marks Toyota’s ‘full’ Hybrid system out as different from other, ‘mild’ Hybrid cars.
Toyota Hybrids can use electric power to pull away and even cruise at speeds up to 50 km/h. The result? Zero fuel consumption, zero tailpipe emissions and a near-silent drive for up to 50% of your urban journeys.
