Toyota Hybrids are known as ‘hybrid-electric’ vehicles because they use a petrol engine and an electric motor. These two engines can operate independently of each other as well as working in tandem.
Toyota Hybrids can use electric power to pull away and even cruise at speeds up to 31 mph. As a result, you can get zero fuel consumption, zero tailpipe emissions and a near-silent drive for up to 50% of your urban journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures. Meanwhile, UK government data shows that hybrid cars have consistently lower CO2 figures than conventional cars.
