The Facts about Hybrid Cars

Whether you're looking for a smoother and quieter way of driving, or want a car that maximises fuel efficiency while minimising emissions – there's a long list of ways our range of seven models in the Toyota Hybrid car range can make the difference in your life.

The Facts About Hybrid Cars

  • Easy to drive - the Hybrid system controls itself and all Toyota Hybrid cars are automatic.
  • Two engines working in tandem - Hybrid gives you the best of both worlds switching seamlessly and quietly between electric at lower speeds and using petrol-power when needed.
  • Batteries that never need to be plugged in - excess power from the engine and regenerative braking recharges the battery so you don't need to worry about plugging in.
  • There's a Hybrid for everyone - with seven different models to choose from across the range we now have something for everyone.
  • Easy on your wallet and the environment - our Hybrid cars save you fuel but also money. Less fuel also means low emissions. Many of our hybrids boast the lowest CO2 emissions in their classes.

Life's easy in a Hybrid, just get in and drive

Our Hybrid cars have been designed to be as easy to drive as possible. When you hit the power button there’s no noise, just a prompt that you’re ready! And as the Hybrid system controls itself, and all Hybrid cars are automatic, you just slot the gear lever in Drive and enjoy seamless power on every trip.


Hybrid: Two engines working in Tandem

Riding in our Hybrid cars you’ll enjoy hearing more of what’s important as their hushed electric power delivers you around town. This electric hit blends seamlessly with efficient petrol-power at higher speeds and, at the moment you need it most, two become one – as both engines work in tandem – to power you ahead.

Batteries that never need to be plugged in

There’s no need to worry about how far you’re travelling in our Hybrid cars, just fill up with fuel and continue on your way, just as you would in any conventional car. And when the battery does run low, excess power from the engine charges it back up again. And that’s not all, whenever you brake, energy is recycled to charge the battery too – so nothing gets wasted.

There's a Hybrid for everyone

Our Hybrid story began in 1997 with the innovator: the award-winning Prius. Since then our Hybrid family has grown, and with seven different models to choose from we now have something for everyone. Whether you’re a city slicker looking for some urban wheels, or an ever-widening family finding it difficult to squeeze everyone in, from the Yaris to the Auris and the Prius to the Touring Sports we’re sure to have a Hybrid answer.

Easy on your wallet and the environment

Not only will you love being behind the wheel of a hybrid, you’ll really appreciate just how much they save. Our best-selling hybrid cars feel right at home in the city – switching off their engines as often as they can to save you fuel and money. And with low fuel-consumption comes low emissions; our hybrid cars boast some of the lowest CO2 emissions in their classes and very low levels of harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx).
