Not all hybrids are the same. When compared with some other hybrids, the main benefit of a Toyota Hybrid is that they always use the electric motors to drive the vehicle, whilst the petrol engine supplies power to the electric motors when needed and supports a generator to charge the hybrid battery too.
Some hybrid cars only use their electric motors to support the engine during acceleration and cruising – the electric motor cannot power the car on its own. In our self-charging Toyota Hybrids, you can enjoy pure electric power for up to 50% of your city journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures. At higher speeds or when overtaking on the motorway, the petrol engine and electric motors work together to give you a strong boost of power.
